Why is it that men or the society give more respect to a lady when she is married than as a single? This has been the question of Lolo Chisom Okoligwe-Anagor and many other African women.
Chisom who recently got married disclosed her bitter experience in the hands of married men and clients as a single lady, and how the only thing that was able to save her was the announcement of her getting married.
Disclosing this on her Twitter handle, she said: “Before I got married, whenever I went to the drug market in Idumota, I was ALWAYS sexually harassed. I’ve had my butt slapped, my boobs pinched, different married men proposing sex to me and all and they felt they had the right to do so because I needed them as clients.
“There was a paradigm shift when I told a couple of men there that I was getting married. They ALL comported. The catcalls, the butt slapping, the nonsense stopped in its tracks.
“My Question is why did it take me being married before I got respected as a human being. I didn’t deserve the basic respect of humanity?” She asked.
We would love to have your opinion about this in the comment section. Why do you think single ladies aren’t given appropriate respect like their male counterpart.
