The Nigerian gay rights activist who told women not to allow patriarchy mess up their belief in themselves, added that it is really sad to see that 99% of applications are from men and when women apply, they are mostly the best.

Bisi Alimi concluded his open letter by telling Nigerian women that their place is in the office making money, and not in the kitchen making dinner. He wrote;

Dear Nigerian women, I am writing to you as an employer, pls be bold, be assertive. Apply for jobs, apply for training opportunities, put yourself out there. It is really sad to see that 99% of applications are from men and when women apply, they are mostly the best.

These men apply for jobs not because they are good, sometimes they dont even know what they are applying for. They mostly apply for these jobs cos they are men and they can.

When women apply for job, most of the times, they do because they know for sure they can do the job and this is why it is sad.

This is what patriarchy does to your mentality, it screws it up. It curbs your progress, it stops you from moving forward,

Nigerian women, your place is in the office making money and not in the kitchen making dinner.

Thanks

  1. You have tried! How ever try and change how you are being introduced as a gay activist. There is God ohh!

  2. Women are no longer vulnerable. Women are speaking up this days and I love that. May God bless the good women out there.

  3. Women should be encouraged at all time….. not to make them feel that they cannot do any other better outside kitchen work

  4. You are right but sometimes we just have to be careful about it because some women might end up not been a good house wife or even have time for her family.

  5. What ever it may be but office is good but not good enough to use as a reason must time have to be in the kitchen making that dinner if not they will leave you in darkness

  6. U have a point to some extent, but you are also advising them to shift their domestic duty as a woman. Try to advise both ways if not our women will drift away from their responsibility to take care of the home.
