A social media user, a Nigerian lady, identified on Facebook as Emilia Chimee Dyke, has posted about men tagging women as “prostitutes”.
Emilia posted an advise/warning to guys who are fond of attributing women’s successes and achievements to prostitution (or “ashewo” in Nigerian pidgin language).
The graduate of Abia State University, ABSU, took to social media to tell guys to respect and appreciate women as many ladies have sleepless nights working in order to make money as entrepreneurs.
She shared her advice on her Facebook wall. Read below;
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.
