In defense of the Woman

‘Servant of God’, ‘Man of God’ the archbishop, bishop, papa, whatever. Titles. God gave each and everyone of us brains. He made none stupid. When we as a people, sit and allow a person and or persons to massage our God given intelligence to assuage their swollen egos then, I beg ……..
Naturally, I should be proud and live by this statement made by this bigoted being since it favors the men. Apuuuuu! I promised myself, my wife would smile at all times. I would cook and clean and be a partner, not a boss. We sat in the same lecture rooms and received degrees on the same day. I saw her being cut three, yes three times to deliver our kids. My mother and aunties toiled tirelessly. I choose to defend womanhood. I will do it till my last breathe. In a novel by Aminata Sow Fall, women are seen as their own enemies. This is a Senegalese, African novel.
I don’t care when this speech was made by this man. It should not have been made. At all. It smacks of male chauvinism. The bible is being twisted just as the law is interpreted according to the judge.
Continue your defence of mediocrity; we, K Amigosten Amoah and others will continue to strive to remove the hooded blanket over your eyes.
Let the wise read and take note accordingly.
I remain, also a servant of God. He hath sent me.

  1. Women must be respected at all times. The very day or time one disrespects a woman, one disrespects his or her own life, (Yaw Ahiekpor, 2015).
