South Sudanese men advised to educate their wives and give Employment opportunities to their wives.

Am seeing a very bad culture of South Sudanese men bringing their wives to stay in Kampala or other parts of Uganda in the name of educating them, Imagine such men will make sure they put their wives to study which is a good idea of empowering women.

However my problem is, some of these wives graduated 3 or more years ago and are still in Uganda, what is the essence of educating her if you can't allow them "Wives" to go and showcase the skills and knowledge acquired. This trend is the worst as, they "Men" should know that, they're depriving their wives the freedom to work and showcase skills and knowledge acquired. I have also witnessed where some husbands take more than four months to 1 year to check on these families in Uganda just because they claim to be busy through out, more over these women got kids who may need a father figure. Women, let's not feel comfortable in this comfort zone,we better rise and go hustle together with our husbands in juba to make a 50/50 contribution to your families. Imagine you can't wait on your husband to build your parents that dream house, it's you to raise the standards of your parents through working. Women we shouldn't show our kids that, our roles as women is only to take care of families and cook, let's set a precedent for our daughters to become leaders not housewives. This is a kind of patriarchy used in a modern day and it sends a very strong message to the kids we are bringing up, imagine the boychild will be treating his wife in the same manner, yet the girl child will also kind of lose her leadership potentials to settle for a house wife. Let your kids all know that, both sexes are equal as development partners and let them know as well that women are meant to be leaders and such can be achieved when they see their mothers working. You see, let your daughter know that, her mama is a powerful woman, a barrister leader, a doctor, an accountant, an engineer etc and she will get motivated to be like her mother too and that's the empowerment we are talking about. We should be talking about empowerment if we don't practice it at the family level. Note: Women empowerment should start from the family level
