Singer Simi says she finds it offensive when she hears people use marriage to accord women respect, making it somewhat okay to disrespect unmarried women.
According to her, respect is respect and should not be limited to some ring that is cuffed on a woman’s finger. She Tweeted; “I hate when people defend women with “how can you talk to a married woman like that?” “You can’t do that to her. Do you know she’s married?” I know u mean well, but you’re implying that disrespecting single women is excusable. We gotta change that.”
“Marriage does not elevate the value of a woman. Every woman, regardless of status, must be treated respectfully. Some married women also need to erase this idea that they’re more special. You’re really not sis. Your special is in the good that you do and the value you add.”
