The Nollywood actress, Etinosa Idemudia has queried the definition of a strong independent woman in Africa.
In an Instagram post, Etinosa questioned the true meaning of a strong woman.
She said that when Africans talk about a strong woman; they are referring to women willing to endure sufferings; maltreatment, and disrespect.
She questioned why successful women, breaking barriers while refusing to be disrespected or maltreated are not the ones referred to as strong women.
Here is what she said:
“There’s one nonsense thing that they do in this society that I don’t like.
It’s as if they use to measure the strength of a woman, they use to measure the virtuousness of a woman by the suffering that she can endure.”
She went on to give examples of women considered strong in Africa.
She added the caption: “The definition of ‘strong woman’ in this our African society needs to improve TBH byyyeeeeeee.”

A couple of days ago, the mother of one revealed that a woman’s wedding day is not the best day of her life.
The controversial media personality opined that the best day of a woman’s life isn’t her wedding day; but rather, it is when she experiences the birth of a child.
“Whoever said a woman’s wedding day is the happiest day of her life has obviously never experienced successful child birth.
“The day I held my daughter and looked into her tiny innocent searching eyes was the happiest day of my life,” she wrote.
