TVC Presenter Tope Mark-Odigie has stated that most Nigerians didn’t understand what she meant when she spoke on air about women being properties of men.
Especially on the issue of the wife that her husband removed her womb without her consent. She has now taken to social media to express herself better.
“I have seen multiple tweets, comments, prayers and curses. Let me set the records straight.
My comments on the show depict the reality of our society, which I don’t agree with, but is our TRUTH.
It is our CULTURE, we don’t need to like it, but we must not play ostriches.
We must face it head on and address it.
As long we celebrate the buying of women (in the name of TRADITIONAL WEDDING) our men will feel entitled to do whatever pleases them with their possessions.
We must change this negative culture that has perpetually “OBJECTIFIED” women.
Culture has evolved over many generations.
We have continually expunged parts that do not serve us – like the killing of twins and albinos.
It is time to expunge seeing women as Properties .
It is time to expunge buying and selling of women.
It’s time to expunge all violence against women.”
