    Honestly I see where she is coming from. My mum was almost the same if she didnt take matters into her own hands and made a move out of the prison she called marriage we will probably still be on 3 thousand naira a month that popsi thought he was doing us a favour. Told her not to work but will rarely drop money anyway that taught me a lesson and i know to always have my OWN. When i eventually get married i plan to continue having my OWN

      shior. you have hit the mark. I am glad your mum learnt and has paved the way for you too. God Bless.

      Aunty Kate us being honest, this has little to do with education. You do not have to be an educated woman to use common sense and make a plan. When things do not go according to plan, will you fold your arms and look?

      Thank you EC, it’s not an education thing but a common sense thing, financial stability and self sufficiency is the biggest gift a woman can give herself.

      Even with the marriage misadventures according to you, she still had a job to go back to. There’s nothing as bad as a human being not been financially stable. And every woman really should otherwise men like PAUL ADEYEMO will kill you with his bad mouth and take you through the cleaners. You will even die of low self esteem . Ladies empower yourselves

      oh no! Paul Adeyemo, you cannot be coming for her like that. What does her marriage have to do with it? Where you in her marriage? and mind you she was already acting and well known as Kate Henshaw before husband. Please take it easy.

      Why are you guys even replying to this boy. He is not a Man.

      He would rather Kate be in an unhappy marriage and be dependent on a man, than to be single and be financially independent. It pains boys like him so much to see people who are financially independent. These type of boys are also jealous of grown, successful Men as well, and not only women.

    I understand what Kate is saying, but I felt she could have said it in a better way. There are a lot of humans who literally are living in bondage and prison both mentally and physically.

    But if you are not living in bondage, then there’s no excuse. I think she’s referring to those women who are waiting for others such as boyfriend, men, or family members for financial support. Stop depending on other people for your financial stability because they can CONTROL you. No matter how little you earn, live within your means, That’s all that really matters.

      exactly. i agree with her but some people have no choice. that’s why we need women empowerment, not just single women, married women too.

      @just my 1 cent ..i feel same way too…she may not understand it because she never experienced it..but if you indeed go to a battered women shelter you will know that it is not their fault..they didn’t just sit there and decided not to be “financially independent……what about a lady that married off at age 16/17 to an abusive older man..where is she to start from …….

      the truth here you have said biko and if i may be permitted to repeat it again and again for all of us women, who are single, with BF or husband and are stuck because of material things ” No matter how little you earn, live within your means, That’s all that really matters.” this statement is enough for the wise, then you will not fall into any financial trappings by a man o BF or husband.

    I wonder who can afford not to work in these days. Everything keeps going up all the time, even at the dollar stores prices are increasing, restaurants, only clothing appears to still be cheap. Unless you are married to a millionaire I honestly do not see how anyone can consciously decide to stay out of the workforce, barring having young children who are not school aged.

    I agree. Married or not, a woman you should be financially stable. In fact every human being should have financial security.

  7. Cheap talk

    August 23, 2016 at 8:34 am

    Talk IS cheap. Sometimes people talk without doing a 360. How about the girl who was emotionally and physically abused all her life? Told she’s not worth a dime and has low esteem issues? Goes on to do very poorly academically, very introverted. No friends no siblings. Has a tough time in life only to meet a man just like her daddy who wifes her only to imprison her?

    This girl has not been empowered from birth. She never knew how to fend for herself, always looking to people for approval, super people pleaser because that’s the only life she knows. How about the millions like her?

    Let us try to be more empathetic. This world is such a harsh and wicked place. Talk is cheap when you’re blessed with your God given freedom. Trust me, freedom is a gift!! I been there!!
