It seems as if the odds increasingly get stuck against women. It is of no surprise that some women who have branded themselves as feminists have arisen.

In Ghana, females used to be marginalized. This marginalization was so profound to the extent that females were denied the right to education. Rather, they were turned into housekeeping entities. Their jobs were to take care of the house and the kids they birth.

It took quite some time, but at the long run, we found the light as a people and realized that females also deserve to be educated.

“If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a nation”.

“What a man can do, a woman can do and do better.”

The above quotes were used to justify the fact that women, like men, also deserve to receive the best of education. The marginalization of women cannot be restricted to Africa as even amongst European countries such as Greece, women were prevented from participating or even watching the Olympic Games. Indeed, women have gone through a lot, and they are still fighting to ensure that they get what’s due them.

But when a lady rises to the top, the rumour mongers begin to trumpet loud noises; Oh! They’ve sold their bodies to rich men. Of course, some people do that, but must we always assume that every influential woman rose to the top by sleeping around?

Such accusations of successful women sleeping around become more annoying because of a lack of basis. Is it negativity or a needless sense of pride where some people feel that women are supposed to be in the market and make kids and so do not have what it takes to become successful?

They are even some tribes in Ghana where women are barely respected. In these tribes, women are treated as second class human beings. These acts are wrong and must be discouraged. The truth is that irrespective of the situation, there are still some hardworking women who have risen through the ranks as a result of their sheer hard work, commitment, zeal, enthusiasm and brilliance.

Such women must be celebrated so here, we take a look at some female celebrities who have used their star power to launch businesses to prove that YES, women are responsible, hardworking, who think of establishing businesses to shoot down rumours that they finance their luxurious lifestyle by sleeping around.
