The Beginning of the ProblemWhile American culture has evolved greatly over the years in regard to a woman's place in society and marital expectations, other countries have tried to maintain their own beliefs and traditions while not being effected by the freedoms that American females take for-granted every day. In this country, we are adapted to the Women's Liberation Movement, which allows women to not only vote, but to make their own choices in every aspect of their lives. Gone are the days of marriages arranged by the parents, as well as stigmas that revolve around an unexpected pregnancy.
The Negative Effects of TraditionOther countries have not reached the point that the United States has reached. Due to religious beliefs or traditions, countries such as Africa still live in a time-warp, determining who and when their daughters will marry, and even the means used to ensure that girl-children never enter the realm of adultery or promiscuity. The methods used are drastic and inhumane, and are still being used today. With this fact being a reality, African government is not able to conceive the possibility that they are planting the seeds of a revolution of women in that system.
Pre-Arranged Marriage During YouthOne of the greatest crimes against African women today is the "marrying off" of them at young ages. Before they are close to being women, girls in this country are being given for marriage and expected to procreate as young as 9 years of age. Another crime being committed against these girls consists of genital mutilation for the purpose of controlling sexual "impulses", thereby guaranteeing their virginity when given in marriage. This practice alone exposes the girls to health issues such as horrible infections, including HIV, and may even extending to scarring, deformities, and death. As a matter of fact, these girls will be so damaged by this practice it can lead to difficulty in childbirth, which leads to death for the female as well. The practices are so inhumane, they cannot be discussed in this format. Child marriage results in numerous consequences to the female population in the country, from domestic violence to sexual abuse in the realm of marriage. Both are suffered by the female, per religion and tradition. Being submissive is demanded, and retaliation or fighting back, in many cases, result in the death of the girl involved.
How Can the Problem Be Solved?Inadequate education, coupled with the degradation inflicted by the males, these girls and women are unable to stand up for themselves. They have literally come to believe that this lifestyle is normal, and they are brainwashed into the belief that submissive acceptance is what is expected by them. The result is females beaten down mentally, emotionally, and physically, all the while longing for the serenity only death will bring to them.
Changing and Upholding the LawAt this time in history, there are many who wish to help change things for these girls. Groups who have dedicated themselves to eliminating the current treatment of these beautiful women are focusing on their education and making them aware of their choices as human beings.
People Want To Make A ChangeThere are many organizations dedicated to changing the rituals and degrading acts that have been imposed on this group of human beings. The only solution is other human being stepping in to make the change happen. By joining together and making our voices loud, change can happen for all the females suffering this torment everywhere.
Facts About Nigerian People
Here is an insider tip about Nigeria People. Are you planning on visiting Nigeria and wondering the kind of people you are going to meet? What do you think of an average Nigerian male? Are you hoping to get married to a Nigerian girl, learn a bit about People from Nigeria, their hopes, dreams, and what is our earnest expectations.
Nigerian People are very concerned about their culture and origin, and are very proud to speak their languages where ever we meet in any part of the world, although, that trait is inherent and mostly expressed by the Hausa and Yoruba (the two major Nigerian tribes, alongside Igbo). Nigerian is the largest country in African and apparently the most popular; hence there is no part of the world where you live in that you wouldn't likely run into Nigeria people.
In the mind of a Nigerian is the desire to move from one stage in life's pyramid to another, the desire to grow, to increase, and to enlarge. Nigeria people are always on the move to the forward; most times we do whatever it takes to change position.
In Nigerian, the man is the head of the family and he makes the final decision, he moves the family ahead and pay almost all the bill, while the women make sure the house is in order, this pattern of living dates back to several years ago when a Nigerian man can get married to as many as five wives and provide for them.
Women in Nigeria are used to staying at home, raising the kids, making sure that food is cooked and served and keeping the house clean, although this pattern of life is being washed away by modern civilization, today some women are even running their homes, driving posh cars and even getting political appointment, some women have even tasted the seat of the president in most African country, something Nigeria People think would never happen in their own country.
Young girls in Nigerian are expected to get married and leave their father's house at most by the age of thirty, it is believed that the woman belonged to a man and a women without a man is without honor, although, many pretty girls in Nigeria, movie stars and female musician have been applauded by many even without a man.
It is obvious that Nigeria people is not without a culture or some sort of "way of life" but the ways of our fore-fathers have often be tagged as ancient and trodden upon, Nigerian people are known to be decent and respectful, a girl in Nigeria is not expected to put on trousers but today it is like they hardly go on the normal "old fashioned" (as they call it) skirt and blouse or wrapper. It is like we are totally adapting the western culture.
All around the world you would likely run into a Nigerian, Nigerian people are easy going and loves the good things of life, the Igbos are very industrious, they can travel to any part of the world for business as long as there would be enough profit.
Nigerian is the most blessed country in African and the 8th amongst oil rich countries of the world, our only problem is that the managers of our resources are believed to be perfectly inefficient. Nigeria have enough resources that if properly manage would put our name on the G20 list in no time.
The earnest expectation of the Nigerian people is for a good leader, a leader with the interest of the general public at heart, a leader that would put the country first and think less of his personal bank accounts which are always numerous.
The April 2011 Nigeria General election was said to be credible and of course I think it is the best we've had in several years. We are hoping that within the next few years, Nigerian will have the freedom to choose who sits in government house and if the leaders are elected by the general public, it is believed that the people of Nigeria will soon have their own sigh of relief.
