Women, Women, Women

When will you realize your power?
The pre-capitalist and matriarchal societies throughout Africa allowed women to have substantial control over politics, the quintessential example of this cultural practice was found in ancient Egypt.
In 3,000 BC, Egyptian women managed real estate properties, slaves, livestock, endowments, and annuities.
Furthermore, due to its matrilineal nature, Egyptian society featured inheritance and descent through a female-led channel. Because Egyptians based their social differences on class and not gender, women could assume great prominence.

One of the best examples of female political leadership was the role of queen mother. This role comprised many high functions of governance and administration including owning land, levying taxes, decreeing laws, and gaining revenues.
In some countries, like Ghana, queen mothers had the additional role of securing a quality education for the women and children of society.
Accordingly, many women possessed much more political authority, rising to the rank of queen in many African nations. Directly ruling over the people, queens like Makeda, the Queen of Sheba(960 BC), were as fierce and warrior-like as they were beautiful and intelligent.

The narrative of equity rather than equality is bullshit!
The narrative that men are superior and can never be equal to women is hogwash!
Ancient Women were the it!
