Simisola “Simi” Ogunleye, the popular Nigerian singer, has expressed her disgust for popular defence lines of “how can you talk to a married woman like that, You can’t do that to her. Do you know she’s married?”
The pretty outspoken wife of music star, Adekunle Gold noted that many use such in defending women.
She stated that marriage does not elevate the value of a woman and women should be respected regardless of their marital status.
Simi also pointed out that such questions implies that disrespecting single women is excusable.
She tweeted; “Hate when people defend women with “how can you talk to a married woman like that?” “You can’t do that to her. Do you know she’s married?” I know u mean well, but you’re implying that disrespecting single women is excusable. We gotta change that.
Marriage does not elevate the value of a woman. Every woman, regardless of status, must be treated respectfully. Some married women also need to erase this idea that they’re more special. You’re really not sis. Your special is in the good that you do and the value you add.”
