Do African women still need men? BBC News Online BBC NEWS | Have Your Say | Do African women still need men? Women of today can do anything they want, so where does that leave African men? Honourable Eziuche Ubani, a member of the Nigerian National Assembly, says women now have the same earning potential as men, can have babies without men and can do any job a man can. He believes African men are becoming irrelevant. Carol Agengo from the Tomorrow's Child Initiative disagrees. She says men want to keep women in a place of subordination and do not embrace their desire to advance themselves. Often women are ridiculed by men for wanting to be financially independent. Tomorrow on Africa Have Your Say both Carol Agengo and Honourable Eziuche Ubani will be guests on the show. As an African man, do you feel you redundant? As an African woman, have men turned away from you because you are independent? Are women in the limelight in your country, or are they relegated to the background? Send us your views.
