A Nigerian writer has left people thinking deeply about the issue of feminism in Africa and the effects patriarchy has had on the relationship between mothers and their daughters.
According to the lady identified as Ijeoma Awuaku Umebinyuo, a lot of feminists are part of the movement because they do not want to end up like their mothers. However, most of these feminists often forget the fight mothers put up, which led to the movement.
The writer went on to emphasize the need for people who are feminists or want to become feminist, to study their cultural background so as to be educated and well-informed about the women who fought against patriarchy.
