Conquering the World in Heels

31 October 2012, 23:38

Over the last decades African women haver been viewed has objects, having the same role and looked down upon. They always had defined roles which never put them in the lime light. Their most basic job titles where secretaries, typists and Persona Assistants.

However this is changing. Slow though the growth may be, its there. We have women that are making it all on their own. Powerful women who are not afraid to challenge a system, to say enough is enough. We will not go unnoticed anymore. The story has always been "behind every successful man is a woman", but why not be on the forefront as well? Why not take up the same challenges and the same job titles as men?

I mean apart from our femininity there is nothing different about men and women. Women can actually do better jobs that women, we can multi-task and still do sterling jobs and everything that we put our minds to.

Take the Former minister of Home Affairs Nkosazana Zuma; she was far better than any other minister of Home Affairs in South Africa. She turned the department around. Women do not even need to lose their femininity or their womanhood in the process. Its just a matter of wearing our stilettos and taking on the world, head on; unafraid and unashamed to be African in the process.

Zambia has their first woman President and she is doing well in that position. Who says that women are too emotional and get too attached to do a job well done? Look at the number of women in the Parliament, Hellen Zille (DA leader); Women are great forces to content with and writing this, l am proud to be a woman and an African woman at that.

Most African men however still believe that a woman's place is in the kitchen bare foot and baring children (as many as they can have). But with time they would realize that we can be mothers as well as CEO's or company owners at any given time. They say "teach a woman and you have educated the whole nation", I say employ as woman leader and see a complete turn-a-round (a positive one) of your company.

This is not to say that l am a sexist but l am giving praise where its due.
