Not having kids or being married, doesn't make me less of a woman - Kemi Adetiba

Filmmaker Kemi Adetiba has made it known she is not less of a woman becuase she isn't married or have kids.

She shares a video of Black-ish star Tracee Eliss Ross on her page and wrote;
“Before the “miss the point” folks start running rogue in my comment section, Tracee Ellis Ross has never once said she never wants to be married or have children. What she is saying however, is that because she currently has neither, some people choose to invalidate all of her personal achievements and growth. Their line of reasoning is her life is yet to have TRUE meaning until a husband and child punctuate her entire existence.

This struck a chord as I get this all the time. I will be 38 in just over a month and a half, and while I would LOVE to be married (to my God-chosen companion, and best friend) and have child(ren), I am very comfortable with the knowledge that my life is just as valid, and beautiful, and happy, and successful, if for some reason that never comes to pass. Marriage and kids is not my “crowning glory”… It’s another BEAUTIFUL step in life I would love to take. I’d also love to make (and keep) a billion dollars in my lifetime, but I won’t be any less of a woman or Kemi Adetiba if that didn’t come to pass either.
No… I’m not comparing the two. I’m just highlighting it doesn’t diminish a (Wo)man’s -Kemi Adetiba’s – worth if it never happens.
Hello… Good morning

  2. I absolutely agree with her.

    But I think in this part of the world, it's really difficult for women without husbands or children especially when they're well over 30 years...they are being mocked silently, society sees them like people cursed, like something is wrong with them. That's wrong.

    Not getting married or having a child is not a sin and it doesn't make a woman any less a woman.
