Olori Wuraola Zynab Otiti - “I am not a fan of gender equality. We can’t be equal… we have our role to play”





She spoke at Emerging Women’s Forum, in Maryland, USA, and she said out of no offense to anyone, she’s not a fan of gender equality, because she thinks that limits women. Her husband the Ooni has his role to play and she has hers.

“I am not a huge fan of gender equality. We can’t be equal, We cant be men. We have our roles to play here, a very pivotal one.”

Her Majesty went on to speak about the powerful roles women play and how women should tap into their powers by exploring themselves in order to reach extraordinary heights, as opposed to fighting for power with their male counterparts.

“The modern pattern of feminism has succeeded in limiting women of the heights they could reach; gender equality is unrealistic. We can never be equal with men, we are here for a great purpose, we have our roles to play we are powerful and we are a force of nature.”

"Without motivation, we can't be inspired and without inspiration, we can't get to the next level"- Queen Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi. #OoniofIfe #QueenWuraolaOgunwusi#TheOoniVisitsAmerica 

"... Relationships are suffering today, because women want to be men...You want to be treated like a queen, but you don't carry yourself like a Queen... " - Her Majesty Olori Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi at The Emerging Women's Forum in National Harbor, Maryland. #OoniofIfe #TheOoniVisitsAmerica #QueenWuraolaOgunwusi 

"I want you all to remember as Women, that we are powerful people... We are here for a greater purpose." #QueenWuraolaOgunwusi #OoniofIfe 

Thank You

The above was shared on the Queen's Instagram which is 'run by staff'. 

It saddens me that supposedly educated people cannot grasp such a simple concept like "gender equality". 

Thoughts?

  1. Ike gwu...

    It's Gender Equality that makes a woman a crowned Queen of England while she (Mrs Olori) is simply content with being the wife of an Ooni.

    To each their own. God made animals before Man yet Man has authority over them. God made Man before woman. Do the maths...

    1. Queen of England is married with kids... How does that buttress your point?

    2. Lol. This maths won't even qualify as a complex equation. GOD gave Man dominion over all animals, did HE give the Woman dominion over Man, or the other way round? Nonetheless, I'm in agreement with your first statement.

    3. Uyi,my point is Gender Equality recognized the legibility of a woman born into the royal lineage as an heir to the throne and not one limited to just the male child in the family.

      You (and the Mrs Olori) really donno what gender equality means and entails. It goes beyond family and domestic chores...

      Delete
    4. The Olorie understands what gender equality is. A lot of women uses gender equality as a platform or a excuse, to redefine their roles in relationship and the family and see men as an the proverbial beating stick, she wants to wear the pant. Yet she is unable to balance success with family and marriage. This has lead to the highest divorce rate, broken homes and marriage. They attack anyone who does not support their fight. Her Royal Highness is saying women are more powerful and should use that energy and disdain for men and focus it on her own lane.

    5. Olecruff, the Olori does not understand what gender equality means. It is obvious if you listen to her speech (es). She mistakes Marital gender roles, which are even objective and subjective, with gender equality.

      Gender equality has almost no business with Marital gender roles, except if it is known that a husband would not treat his wife with the least respect, solely because he sees her as less. That's all.

    6. Who cares about'family chores' and domestic ish. If I can do it, then fine. If I can't, I don't expect to marry someone who can't. It's called compartmentalisation.
      Let's know 'us'.
      You people are the same individuals against homosexuality and here trying to unwind the reality of life.

  2. I dont think I have been more annoyed in a long time...this is one of the women that is trying to take us back to the stone age as she was too busy looking for sponsors rather than learning what gender equality entails....thirst traps shouldn't be given microphones before they have a chance to learn what the actual issues are..when people think gender equality is about domestic roles and marriage we have a greater problem on our hands.

    1. Women! *sigh. She never mentioned anything concerning fender equality being 'about domestic roles and marriage'.
      Let me quote her;
      'We can never be equal with men, we are here for a great purpose, we have our roles to play we are powerful and we are a force of nature.”
      Kindly reread these words carefully and digest it wholeheartedly. Tell me why you can't see beyond the picture being played to you by those with rather more selfish interests.

      My point is, don't be equal, be better.

      Delete
    2. Be better how? When you are denied access to basic human rights such as equal pay and education? Please help me understand. Saudi Arabia is a perfect example of gross gender inequality - are those women better when they don't have basic human rights?

      Nobody is asking to be a man - let many of US here not forget we are from somewhat priviledged backgrounds so gender equality was never really an issue from home - we didnt have to stop school so our brothers go could go. However somebody must be a voice for those who had to. Likewise somebody must be a voice for those who are. Those who are offered less pay because we are women despite working just as hard...so you cannot be better when you are denied the basics.

    3. Uyi,
      Being equal has to do with getting equal pay for the same job, not being restricted by my gender, not having to get my husband's permission to get a Nigerian passport amongst other things.
      It's not about women wanting to take over a man' s responsibility

      Delete
    4. Uyi, please how do you say she never mentioned anything about gender equality and Marital roles when she clearly sighted examples using her husband, women trying to be men and also divorce rates?

      What has being as educated as the next guy in my lineage or getting equal chances to a higher position at work with a male colleague with same qualifications and work graded KPI have to to with divorce?

      Or do you, Uyi, agree that it is wrong to 'want to be men' when it comes to having equal opportunities and advantages educationally, politically?

    6. That's a shade/ blow you gave her! I'm not going to pretend I didn't think it too when I listened to her. That speech was embarrassing...borderline annoying.

      If she thinks, albeit wrongly that gender equality is breaking up marriages, then I don't know what to tell her. Going by her rumoured history, she should know. *shrugs*

    8. Broken marriage is part of the package I guess...
      Basically, people have to get with the program called 'gender equality'.

  3. She simply does not know the meaning of gender equality. A simple Google search would have saved her the embarrassment. J

  4. I actually support her notion... The words 'gender equality', to me, is coined from the innate desires to be 'where men are'. Like as if you can't see beyond where a man's ego lies. Look beyond the equality.

    I remember chatting with Thelma once, as regards the power of a woman, how to create a compelling article/story on it. And how they actually 'rule the world'.

    Well, you women just have to see beyond the heights of 'gender equality' and don't be limited by it. It shouldn't even be your motivation. You don't see us men crying to be women.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Men can never cry to be women because who exactlt wants to have less access than the next? Exactly. No gender equality advocate is asking for men to start bearing children and breastfeeding them, what we are asking for is a woman's rights - access to the same level of education, access to the same level of health care, access to the same level of pay for the same amount of work etc...we are not asking for much really just basic human rights.

      However folks want to conduct their relationships or marital duties in terms of gender roles is their business...but every female ahould have the same level of access as a man within any society.

      An apple is a fruit, likewise an orange is a fruit and both deserve the to be cared for on the same level...

    2. I didn't want to go this route but I have to. Everyone is seeing the problem but not the source of it.
      If I'm getting it correctly, we are looking at this 'problem' from a narrow point of view.

      All the issues u have raised yourself, isn't about the society per se, but the foundation of the society. We can't eat our cake and have it.
      Nigeria is one of the most religious nation in earth, how do u expect a society brood from religious principles, practices, books etc. To unwind those ways just for 'gender equality', so to speak.
      The Queen doesn't have a choice but to go around it, be best that she can be in the society(sorry, foundation of the society) she's a product of. How many of you are ready to denounce your religious beliefs for the sake of issues like 'gender equality'?

  5. LOL. What was the Ooni's facial expression like during the speech? I won't entirely blame her though; "Gender Equalty" and "Feminism" are two words that are very much misconstrued in this part of the world.

    "...You want to be treated like a queen, but you don't carry yourself like a Queen..."

    "...we are here for a great purpose, we have our roles to play, we are powerful and we are a force of nature...".

    Those statements didn't do justice to her theme, or perhaps the theme of the Forum(?). Miss Pynk is annoyed, I'm greatly embarrassed by the queen's speech.

  6. ""Gender Equalty" and "Feminism" are two words that are very much misconstrued in this part of the world."

    "she’s not a fan of gender equality, because she thinks that limits women."... Doesn't it?

    Feminism is quite different from gender equality. Fact.
    I do not think she would not be a fan of feminism.
    Mind you, this is a forum in US of A. Wonder why USA, what sort of enlightenment as regards this topic is needed over there? Well, that's if you don't think she doesn't 'grasp' the concept of 'gender equality'.

    Gender equality has always been clamoured for, not now not yesterday. But to what end? To achieve the feat of being 'equal'? In what please?

    Please look beyond the reality here in Nigeria or
    'this part of the world'(sic)

    1. Feminism and gender equality are one and the same.

      We have irrational and radical sects in most groups ; religious, Social etc. That does not relegate the actual proper creed of any said group.

      I know, some women even think gender equality also means, do not acknowledge your husband as the head, that it is OK, to make decisions and act on it without discussing with your husband or even good boyfriend. Whose fault is it? They too need re schooling about feminism an gender equality.

      Gender equality does not concern itself with how you or your husband decide to 'man' your home. Which like I said earlier, is both subjective and objective.

  7. When my sister played the video of this speech last night, I couldn't see who was speaking but I said to her "I don't care how "intelligent" whoever is speaking is but she is very silly if she thinks that's all gender equality is about" cos how can you come out at a public event and spew so many ignorant words with such confidence. It was then my sister told me it's "the wife of the king of your village so better mind yasef". I was greatly embarrassed for her.

    Seriously, not every "majesty" or "royal highness" should be able given a mic to speak at public events cos they didn't get to the throne based on intelligence or smartness. I can just imagine if Chimamanda was sitting in that hall or how many people who know better were sitting there and had to remain seated cos you can't walk out on "her royal highness" even if her speech is reducing your IQ by the second.

  8. A lot of people still have a lot of reading , learning , unlearning and understanding to do.

    Its even more pathetic when women arevso ignotant of the efforts other women went through to attain the levelnof freedom and priviledge that they have now.

    Did you know at some point in history women were not allowed to vote or run for public office.
    Gender equality made that possible.
    No reasonable woman wants to take over the traditional role of a man. Heck, the only thing i probabaly would want a man to take over is carrying a baby for 9 months, birthing and nuturing the baby until 10 years.

    Gender equlaity for petes sake isnt these petty things people make it to be.

    Goodness

  9. Im just so embarrassed. Haba.
    Uyi, ni woman can aspire to be betterbif she is denied access to the basic things to ensure she is better.

    The reasin why most of us women have access to goid education today is because our mothers and their mothers before them were schooled on the importance of educating the girl child.

    I recently gave a scholarship to a young girl from the north who was about to be married off by her father. After talkng to him , his excuse was that he needed money to boost his business and had to give his daughter out in marriage to do so.
    I schooled hom on the improtance of sending his daughter tobat least secondatu school level as it will enable her make better choices abd attracy a better husband.

    He reluctantly agreed but said he had no money to send her to school. He said there was no point sending her to school as she woild be married off anyway.

    Yet He has two sons attending school.
    This is a practical example of the power of gender equality .

    It saddens me that because of ignorance people keep spewing nonsense in the name of having an opinion.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested?

I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
