A Nigerian woman has explained how men at Idumota market in Lagos ceased from sexually harassing her after she told them she was getting married.
@Miss_Magnolia20 on Twitter, stated that before this, she was sexually harassed by men including the married ones who proposed sex to her as they felt they had the right to do so because she needed them as clients.
She also questioned why it took her getting married to be respected as a human being by these men.
Before I got married, whenever I went to the drug market in Idumota, I was ALWAYS sexually harassed. I’ve had my butt slapped, my boobs pinched, different married men proposing sex to me and all and they felt they had the right to do so because I needed them as clients.
There was a paradigm shift when I told a couple of men there that I was getting married. They ALL comported. The catcalls, the butt slapping, the nonsense stopped in its tracks. My Question is why did it take me being married before I got respected as a human being.
I didn’t deserve the Basic respect of humanity?
