The role of a woman is multi -dimensional and one cant really take it for granted. Women are the home keepers, they take care of the entire household including the man of the house. These roles haven’t changed much aside that a lot of women have included a thriving career or business role to the already overloaded responsibilities.
In the process of delivery and keeping the household, do women protect the men too much?
Speaking at the first Obama Foundation international summit on Wednesday, Obama who was one of the event’s headliners said that men are raised to be babies and protected by women, who were brought up to be strong.
In her words: ‘It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls,’ Obama said.
‘We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men – and I think we pay for that a little bit.
‘Are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled and self-righteous sometimes? But, that’s kind of on us too as women and mothers, as we nurture men and push girls to be perfect.’
“Y’all should get you some friends,” Obama joked. “And talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do — we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends.”
‘Talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do – we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends,’ she said.
She continued: ‘It’s powerful to have strong men, but what does that strength mean? You know, does it mean respect? Does it mean responsibility? Does it mean compassion?’
