New Mom/ Actress, Etinosa Idemudia Questions The Seemingly Clouded Views Of African Definition Of A ‘Strong Woman’

Nollywood actress and comedienne, Etinosa Idemudia recently took to Instagram to question the African definition of a “strong woman”.

According to the mother-of-one, when Africans talk about a strong woman, they are referring to a woman willing to endure sufferings, maltreatment, and disrespect.

She countered that and redefined a strong woman to a successful woman who is breaking barriers while refusing to be disrespected or maltreated. In her words:

“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.”
