Mommy Time - Mercy Johnson Takes Baby Purity Along For Business Meeting

Posted in: , , ,

Mercy Johnson Okojie, in a recent picture where she's carrying her daughter Purity, mentioned that she was at the Bank of Industry for a 'small meeting' probably for business endorsement. Mercy returned to work after having her baby back in December 2012, and if these pictures are anything to go by, she seems to be a hands-on working mother. All the best to Mercy with the meeting.

Kate Henshaw is from Cross River State, and to further promote her recently launched book [see pictures], Kate visited with the first Lady, Mrs. Obioma Liyel Imoke and had a small book presentation. A friend was wondering if Kate Henshaw wrote the book with the help of a ghost writer, but I later got to find out that it is a pictorial book, made up of mostly photos from Kate's life as an actress through the years. Congrats again to her.

7. The Red Flags I Overlooked Before my Abusive Marriage - One Woman's Domestic Violence Story

Posted in: , , ,

My name is Omalinze Okonkwo. I am a 33 year old Nigerian woman, who fled to the US to get away from a violently abusive husband/marriage. It had been hell, pretty much from day one of our 10 year marriage, with lots of hospitalizations and two separations in between. And it was ALL forms of abuse, from physical to emotional to psychological to mental to financial. This is the story of how I left, it was not and has not been easy, but I'm glad I'm free.

Chinese Woman Arrested for Slapping Kneeling Boyfriend - Domestic Violence is Never OK

Posted in: , ,

I finally saw the video of this young woman repeatedly slapping her kneeling boyfriend on the street in Hong Kong went viral yesterday. On Nairaland where I first saw the pictures, some people seemed to be jubilating, and even the title made it seem like it was some girl power kinda stunts. No it is not. Domestic violence is never OK, whether it is a man or a woman dishing it. See video below. Funny enough, it was women who later intervened, none of the men spoke up. I wonder why.
