When i remember powerful women like Oprah, Queen Amina of Zaria, Fumilayo Ransome kuti; women who have left their footprint on the sand of time; saying that a woman should be allowed only in the other room is inappropriate all the way around. Now, what goes on in the other room becomes the primary role of a woman only as a wife and a mother. But as an individual, she has greater roles to play in the society. Saying that a woman belongs to the other room is a big slight to the feminine gender.
If the aforementioned powerful women who broke down societal imposed barriers were limited to the bed room and kitchen, they wouldn’t have made history! Goes to show, just like her male counterparts, a woman is equally capable and functional.
So, it’s about time we get rid of the notion that being born with a vagina automatically means that you must be confined to the kitchen and the other room. A woman should be defined as an individual not by her conjugal roles and domestic roles.
