Feminism is anti African
Feminism is a Eurocentric concept rooted in an out of balance european society. In Africa there was no need for this destructive concept, as African women and men harmonized into the society; each respectful of their different roles. A woman saw nothing inferior in cooking, the act of caring for her man gave her pleasure and the act of protecting a woman gave a man pleasure. We need to remember that our anti-polygamy mindset and our entire value system were given to us by the european when they destroyed our civilizations. We have their culture and have made our own taboo. Do you think for example they could be an Africa without polygamy?
But a westernize look at Polygamy for example makes it seem unbalance and unfair. To each his own but it is really only another system which is older than monogamy and has been more successful in the history of humanity. Not saying do it or don't do it (and most men say its wrong and then cheat?—go figure which is worst). Just that we recognize that our taboos were given to us by our conquer and "civilizer" and the things which they didn't do became our new taboos (nothing to do with us all to do with their taste and take on the world). Yet homosexuality is becoming more and more accepted in African-America. We have drifted so far it is impossible to measure.
We have become lost to ourselves seeking to be something and someone that we are not.
Femanism is so often confused with womens rights, they are so not the same thing. The rights of women are informed by the culture (washed by Justice and truth) feminism is just a perversion of nature. Imagine a woman leaving a child with a man to bottle feed while she goes to work—that is feminism. or chasing a career and having a child at 40!!! femanism actually injurs the natural rights of a woman. It denies them the most beautiful gifts sent from the creator.
When a man and a woman respect each other in an African way the woman has no need to react and find anti-african philosophies.

Its important to recognise that women are not all the same. Likewise the same of men. Thankfully.
Smacks of total male chauvanism. Which women in this time will accept her partner having a 2nd or 3rd or 4th or 5th or Nth mate? Its abhorrent. If my bf ever cheated on me it'd be over.
Polygamy is not a negative aspect of African culture, its one aspect of it and a very small part of the very diversity you are calling for us to celebrate.
Why do you hold on to the negative aspects of African culture and not celebrate the diversity and creativity of African people?
Feminism empowered us and gave us a chance. Only a complete pig would want to shackle us to the sink.

I must protest. In so far as our base femininity goes - and indeed our collective opposition to the chauvanistic male norms that dominate global society- we women are all the same.
Like many non western cultures - African cultures tend to me male dominated more so then others. It is wrong to practice polygamy in this day and age. It is a recipe for sexual disease and trouble.
There is much good about Africa, but please do not be unwilling to call out the bad. Female genital mutilation, body mutilations like lip plates, setting bridal 'prices' expressed in cows et al. That is backward and counter productive...
... no decent woman of good stock will accept that.
