Nigerian actress, Simi has expressed her disappointment at how some people accord maximum respect to married women compared to single women.
According to the ‘Joromi’ hitmaker marriage does not elevate the value of a woman and that every woman must be treated respectfully regardless of her marital status.
She opined that getting married doesn’t mean you are special than others.
Simi’s comments come at the back of 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?”
According to her, such questions suggest that single women are being disrespected and that shouldn’t be the case.
She took to her twitter handle to express her disgust at such expression.
“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.”
