  • From the other side of Africa, the world through new eyes | Jina Moore

  • "She left out the ladel! We're sending her back and getting a new wife." | Jina Moore
    for a stocked kitchen in Rwanda She also brings the things you clean with And my favorite she brings the mattress And the sheets The Rwandan men in the room were quick to counter that the man brings things too The living room furniture for example And in a point for gender equality he brings the marriage bed He also has to procure the house which it was pointed out to me is no small investment of time or money It quickly dawned on the women in the room that the deal is still pretty raw for us The men may find a house bring the furniture and support our marriage mattress with the loveliest of frames but those are low maintanence contributions with no expectations The women have to bring the stuff their husbands will expect them to use every day the broom the pots and pans the flour The women will have to wash those damn sheets once a week or month if you re like me It s all in service of the family the more jaded of us might say the men and it s all laid out right at the beginning literally in front of the husband s family who you show the stuff to At least I suppose you know what you re getting into Tags gender marriage Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Previous article Rwanda Congo Mission Isolates UN Next article Rebels Drop Guns Return to Rwanda
