The African Culture's View: Patriarchy And Feminism.

15

THE AFRICAN CULTURE'S VIEW: PATRIARCHY AND FEMINISM. Episode one. Africa without doubt have experience series of unfortunate physical and psychological wars, culture wipe, impositions and invasions in the past. The war is still present with us but in a different colour - the attractive colour. It is now a subtle war against our culture and identity. Patriarchy and feminism ( not the toxic ones) is a part of our culture that is actually balance and not viciously against each other as some were made to believe. The African societies are predominantly founded on patriarchal rules, yes! Women are not important? The word of women is irrelevant? Should women be view as an object to be used for reproductive and kitchen roles only? Women are not equal to men? This are some of the questions feminism want answers to. Facing the reality, African's societies patriarchy ( should it even be called patriarchy? ) Have never been viciously against women's rights. The African culture stand to be protecting women. Certain culture limit some activities to men, not that the women are not equal to men, no! It simply means the roles may be hazardous to women. If our culture is a den of evil misogynistic patriarchy as proposed, we should not have women warriors, goddess, regents, chiefs and queens of influence in our society. If women are not important to African's culture, then why is it actually a must for most if not all African king to be married before he can actually be crowned? The African politics give women rights to express their views abundantly, there are women chiefs who wield mighty power in the society, women forms groups and cults to express their views, displeasures and pursue their ambition without any misogynistic opposition. The history of heroic women were also well recorded; a misogynistic patriarchal society will not do this. © Lat1ene PHILO WRITER™. This work is subjected to copyright terms and conditions.
