“Nigerian Men’s Definition Of A Strong Woman Is Long Suffering” – Toke Makinwa




Media personality, Toke Makinwa has taken to Twitter to bare her thoughts concerning men’s perception of a strong woman.

According to Toke, men think that the ideal definition of a strong woman is one who has endured all forms of abuse, including long-suffering.


Toke also vents about the fact that society also sadly subscribes to this narrative, and has infact encouraged for far too long.

Furthermore, she noted that the few ones who try to stand up fr themselves are labeled wayward and too opinionated.

She wrote;

Nigerian men’s definition of a strong woman is long suffering, emotional abuse and a high tolerance of accepting bad behavior.

You’ll hear them say “she turned the boy in me into a man”, that means her name is endurance, the woman has endured.

Society encourages that sort of narrative, women are seen as strong by the amount of BS she’s has to endure till the man was ready to give her peace.

When they meet the women who stand up for themselves? Society labels them as wayward and too opinionated. Who is Society again?
