It has been a moment of transition in the society. Being a woman in the kenyan society can really pose a challenge to any woman who is unsure of how she should carry herself especially in public. This is due to the perception by the kenyan men of how an ideal woman should be, like the discrimination of darker skinned women in preference to lighter skinned women: the war between darkskins and lightskin women .The wife material, the side chiq material as they are commonly known on social sites, The wife material mostly is that woman who faithfully goes to church in a long skirt whereas the side chiq is that woman who will be having a terrible hang over on a sunday morning after a night out. We have seen women conforming to some standards set by people who should not even have a say in their lives. story for another day.
Talking from a sociologists view i am glad that there are women who have refused to be defined by the society and have taken up their own paths. They are no longer confined by the traditions to be housewives but they are allowed to chose their own paths. Those are the kind of women i will talk about today.
I am particularly touching on young women who have worked their way up to the top. Its not uncommon for us to see a young successful lady and somebody somewhere raises their voice to tell the rest that she is kept and there is no hardwork in what she is. I really don’t like it when men and to some extreems women
make such allusions .
Dear men, hear me when i tell you this, there are women who have goals and work towards them, women who do not depend on men, women who wake up early and go to sleep late in the evening just to ensure that they are a step closer to their dreams, women who will deny themselves the pleasures of a moment eyeing that of a life time.
And to my fellow women appreciate other women who are making it, let us not be the source of another womans downfall as the saying goes, the enemy of a woman is a woman. So before you accuse a woman on how she got to the top,
think … real hard.
