Famous Feminist and writer Chimamanda Adichie just finished a pep talk with some of her fans this evening, Titled and ‘##aneveningwithchimamanda and she talked a lot about the role of a Woman, of which one is that Cooking shouldn’t be compulsory for women.
On her Bride Price, Chimamanda said:
“When I got married, I felt very conflicted about the payment of bride price. And my father, a very lovely man said he didn’t want any money because we were not selling anybody.
Instead he asked for something symbolic. And so he asked for 1 Kobo because of it’s symbolism. I think bride price should be scrapped from our culture.
On women cooking, she said
If you are born a woman, cooking skill doesn’t come with your v@gina”
