A Nigerian lady who goes by the name Emilia Chimee Dyke on Facebook, in a post she made on the social media platform, has urged men to stop calling ladies derogatory names like Ashawo, which translates to prostitutes.
According to the Abia State University, ABSU graduate, not all women that have achievements to flaunt are involved in prostitution and it gets worse when other women join the wagon to castigate their fellow sisters.
She shared her advice on her Facebook wall.
She drives a car : Ashawo
She rents a flat; Ashawo
Ignore cat calls; Ashawo
Go to a bar/club alone: Ashawo
Goes to the market; Ashawo
Gets a degree; Ashawo
Does charity; Ashawo
Dress comfortably; Ashawo
Makes up; Ashawo
Becomes a celebrity; Ashawo
Please why is it a crime to respect women for their hard work?
Why must you look down on women as “ashawo”?
Must you term every achievement of a woman as “ashawo”?.
To every hardworking lady doing legit jobs and doing well for herself, I AM PROUD OF YOU.
Soon we will celebrate our achievements in each other’s private jets.
To the other set of women that condemns her fellow woman and says; na Ashawo. She’s into runs. I pray you will be alive to see more achievements from the hardworking lady then you’ll remain in your gossip state begging her for help one day.
Dear men learn to respect and appreciate women. Stop this madness of attributing her achievements to “ashawo”. Many of us have sleepless nights working and packaging products as entrepreneurs. Many of us have sleepless nights reading and browsing. Many have sleepless nights handling one business or the other or even writing note of lesson for their pupils.
Appreciate every woman because without the neck, the head can never stand.
