Nse Ikpe-Etim’s Post on Womanhood is Important

“A woman is a person,” Nollywood actress Nse Ikpe-Etim writes in an Instagram post, letting everyone know womanhood is not contingent of motherhood.

The actor shared a photo of herself with a post about how pressuring women to be mothers is insensitive.

Not all women will be mothers, she shared, some because they are unable to and others because they don’t want to. This doesn’t make them any less of a woman, she shared.

A woman is a person. A person who can decide what she wants to do with her body or her time.

 

 

So, it is extremely ignorant to expect all women to eventually be mothers.

There are many reasons why a woman may not have children.

Infertility is more common than we know and to immediately ask a woman why she doesn’t have a child is extremely insensitive.

There are also women who have chosen to not have children simply because they will not put their bodies through pregnancy. They simply do not want to have kids and this is perfectly okay.

Whatever a woman decides to do – to have babies or to not; or whether they are battling infertility is no one’s business.

Happiness is all that matters. Gratefully, it is absolutely free.

My prayer and hope is that one day we will not judge unfairly unmarried or childless women.

That being said, if children will make you happy, I pray that you have loads of them.

If you do not want or cannot have kids, remember that you can still find joy and do not allow anybody make you feel less.

Enjoy life. Breathe freely and enjoy all the beauty in the world.

For me, love and light are the truth and all I ever want is to live in happiness and pure truth.
