Bisi Alimi Writes Nigerian Women


Bisi Alimi (born Ademola Iyandade Ojo Kazeem Alimi, 17 January 1975 in Lagos) is a Nigerian gay rights activist, public speaker, blog writer and HIV/LGBT advocate who gained international attention when he became the first Nigerian to come out of the closet on television.

Bisi Alimi got married to Anthony Davis, his Australian husband in November 2016. 

According to Bisi, Nigerian women should apply for job opportunities and trainings because they are the best employees, when they apply for a job, they know for sure they can do the job, he said.

Dear Nigerian women, I am writing to you as an employer, pls be bold, be assertive. Apply for jobs, apply for training opportunities, put yourself out there. It is really sad to see that 99% of applications are from men and when women apply, they are mostly the best.

These men apply for jobs not because they are good, sometimes they dont even know what they are applying for. They mostly apply for these jobs cos they are men and they can.

When women apply for job, most of the times, they do because they know for sure they can do the job and this is why it is sad.

This is what patriarchy does to your mentality, it screws it up. It curbs your progress, it stops you from moving forward,

Nigerian women, your place is in the office making money and not in the kitchen making dinner.
