Yvonne Okoro Gifted Black Queens $10,000 – What Has Social Media Feminist, Lydia Forson Done For The Women She Claims To Be Empowering?

Yvonne Okoro And Lydia Forson

GhanaCelebrities.com and its brutally honest writers have always maintained that feminism in Ghana is big a JOKE ─ a joke championed by women who are just talkers and not doers.

Talk is cheap and anybody at all can sit on social media and brand herself or himself as a feminist on the back of some cheap and weird feminism principles.

This is the case of Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson who over the years has branded herself as a feminist championing feminism, gender equality and women empowerment ─ and funnily, she does the empowering of women on social media with long and boring write-ups aimed at bashing others especially men who do not share in her porous feminism principles.

The question is what has Lydia Forson done for the women she claims to be empowering? There is nothing to point at when it comes to Lydia Forson’s rants about feminism ─ it’s just the usual noise on social media for likes and comments.

Unlike Lydia Forson, her colleague actress, Yvonne Okoro is walking the talk even though she is not known to be a feminist.

Yvonne Okoro a week ago walked the talk by donating a whopping US$10,000 to Ghana’s Senior Women’s team, Black Queens for qualifying to the semi-finals of the 2019 WAFU Zone B Women’s tournament held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.

If Yvonne Okoro’s kind gesture to the Black Queens isn’t the true definition of feminism then what’s it?

Feminism isn’t just about sitting on social media and writing boring articles for likes and comments as our very own Lydia Forson has been doing over the years ─ perhaps, she should come out and tell us what she has done for the women she claims to be empowering aside from her social media feminism jokes.

If Lydia Forson and Yvonne Okoro are placed on ballot papers to be voted for on who’s truly helping women and championing true feminism, I’m not sure any sane person will vote for Lydia Forson ─ because feminism isn’t about cheap talk.
