UK-based Ghanaian songstress, Stephanie Benson is not happy about how women are treated in Ghana.
During a discussion with Joy FM, Stephanie bemoaned over how women are terribly treated by their husbands in the country.
Stephanie, who is married to a white man, stated that she was shocked when she witnessed how most women are treated when she was in Ghana some time ago.
“When I came to Ghana I was shocked about how inept a lot of them were. How they treated adult women was pretty shocking to me and it looks normal to them. It took me a while to try to get used to it. So in Ghana, how women are treated is terrible and I will blame the mothers. Because in African societies, the women are the ones who bring up the child. The men just come in after work, eat and go to bed.
“And I noticed that the women tend to allow the men talk to them anyhow they want and usually, they make excuses for it. I see it even in educated families in Ghana. So I think it is up to the women to show that they will not put up with certain behaviors from their men and that will trickle down to (the children). It has effect on the children when they see what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. It is up to us to set the standards by showing them how they should treat women,” she disclosed.
