‘Don’t try to be superwoman’ – Naa Ashorkor shares inspiring message to women

To celebrate women on International Women’s Day, Ghanaian actress and television host, Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku has shared a belated message.

In a message titled ‘Being a woman is hard’, the Asaase Radio host, shared an insightful message on the challenges women go through to maintain a career and home.

She shared on her social media pages

We have been constantly told that we can do all things, be all that we want to be, thrive, succeed and be superwomen. All good.

What we’re not told is that at some point, we’d have to choose between handing our 3-month-old to a nursery teacher at 6 am & returning to work so that we are not passed over for promotions, that we’d be sitting in major meetings while lactating and have milk dripping down our stomachs, that there’d be many times when we will question our choices, we will cry in the toilet and wipe our faces and face the world. While the whole time having to endure snide comments about our bodies.

If you decide not to have children or haven’t had them yet, it’s probably worse. A friend of mine battling PCOS was once told that the reason she didn’t get a job was that they were concerned she might have children one day and they didn’t need the “inconsistency the mothers bring”
Damned if we do, damned if we don’t.
This thing is tough.
Yes, it’s a phase, it’d pass.
But until then, take care of yourself, you deserve a life of goodness.

Don’t try to be superwoman.
Fun fact? You don’t have superpowers! You’re a human being.
Ask for help.
Accept the help.
Find your people.
Support is important.
Spend some of that money on yourself, you too deserve good things.

See her post below.
