I came to accept a long time ago that for many men in Ghana especially, the value of a woman is dependent on whether or not she’s married and has children. All her achievements automatically mean nothing if she hasn’t met any of the above requirements. You can take care of 100 orphans and it will mean nothing if you don’t have children of your own. You can be married to an abusive husband, and your worth will still be more than a successful woman without one. Oh but it doesn’t end there, after you’ve finally caved to the pressures of society you have to hope agree with who you want to marry, or it’s back to the pool of the “unworthy”. And people like Counselor George Lutterodt only reinforces these stereotypes. And because of his like, many young girls will feel unfulfil
