WHY ARE BOYS TAUGHT TO VIEW US AS OBJECTS?

Keywords: {0}

I grew up with men in my family constantly viewing women as objects, I thought this was completely normal because it was normal. I was being catcalled at 12 by grown men. That was all I’ve ever know. Sometimes I feel as though I will have to put up with catalling and unwanted sexual advances from men for the rest of my life. I do believe some people will just never change and grasp common sense, and respect of others, and that is scary; but that is our reality as women.

I want things to get better, allow young girls to be young girls and allow women to breathe and live life, there’s so much to what we can be, why are you limiting us?

Being raised as a girl child in most African homes is difficult and can really be overwhelming most of the times that you begin to wonder if there was a need to be born and sometimes because of how you are raised you question paternity. Growing up we have practically (maybe not all of us but a good number of us) been groomed for a person who we haven’t met,I mean the husband we haven’t met. Some of us who didn’t experience this growing up in our households experienced this in some other social settings . The school,work,religious gatherings etc if you aren’t been asked about getting married then you are being cautioned about a behavior that might prevent you from getting married . In their term “ who will marry you like this” There is so much pressure to be a better person but definitely not for yourself rather for the man who you’d turn out to be his wife and then you keep wondering is there anything I could be or do just for me. It is like you don’t exist. Personally I have many times simply hated that I came to be born a woman and worst of all Nigerian. Knowing that not just me have hard a bitter experience or my own fair share of this primitive school of thought our elders share in. I decided to have ask a couple of beautiful Nigerian young ladies to share their experiences or stories as regards this topic

I belong to a society where girl children are raised with only one goal in mind to get her married to a decent boy when she grow up, who can take care of her after marriage

I want to talk and write about journey of all those girls who are still struggling in India for their rights and looking for a home to be called their own. And struggle doesn’t end there for the girl even after marriage it’s on their luck How good or bad boy they got married to and how he ll treat? Why leave it on fate?
