Popular Yoruba actress, Ronke Oshodi Oke has spoken candidly and bitterly about how women are made to face molestation and sexual harassment in their search for jobs or at their work places. According to her, women have had to give more than their brains to get their dream jobs.
Here is what she wrote:
“We were all born with different dreams!! We all had plans!! We all pictured our lives in perfection!! We were ready to take over the world!!
But no one told us the sacrifices we had to pay!! No one told us of the exchange involved!! No one told is that being a girl child came with its own torture and ungodly sacrifices!! No one told us that most times we had to give more than just our brains to get that dream job!!
Back then it was all by merit but right now the story is twisted!! It is now a thing of knowing someone at the top or using what you have to get what you want!! The society is sick!!
Most girls are now scared to even be friends with their bosses, so as to avoid the unknown!! Sex is now the new application letter!!
Even guys are not left out!! Female/male bosses use most of these guys as a tool of satisfaction all in the name giving them their dream job!!”
She however gave her own piece of advice to the society:
“To everyone out there going through this sickening situation the country has put us all in, please my darling ? take a step backwards and ask yourself for how long? To what end?
Restructure your life! Rediscover yourself! Pursue your dreams!! Be a noisemaker if you have to? Dare to become more and hustle legitimately!! Iyanu ma shele!! Don’t sell your body for money or any JOB!”.
