Anyways today I saw a post on a friend's facebook page and I thought to check it out. It showed a couple of black female women, who just made history. According to the youtube video: " for the first time in the history of the US flight, was staffed by an all female African American flight crew. www.youtube.com
The ladies were so excited and I am sure they couldn't believe that they had made history.
I loved the story cos as I grew up and began to realize my role as a woman in society and the role society had forced on women, I began to advocate in my little way for women to take more risk, explore their talents, and resist the restrictions on them by society.
I can't wait for the day I would see a lot of female plumbers, carpenters, farmers, mechanics, electricians, pilots, artist, graphic designers, photographers, presidents, governors, cartoonist etc in Nigeria, in Africa and in the world. I can remember the comment my mother's driver made the first day he saw a female taxi driver. He found it very strange, and said that there was no way he was going to marry a woman like that, for he knew she wasn't going to know who the man of the house was"...
Now my thinking how does it imply? Why would society be very stiff? Why can we not be more open to changes and the good that comes with it (positive changes)?
Anyways I hope you have a lovely day and we would chat later.
Don't forget to drop your comments, I always look forward to them.
