Ghanaian Journalist and News anchor, Bridget Otoo has posited that every woman needs to be referred to as “ashawo” (to wit a prostitute) before being identified as a woman.
She claimed took this position after Twitter trolls targeted her with the word in recent times.
Bridget Otoo was speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, where she tried to justify why she and her colleagues, Nana Aba Anamoah and Serwaa Amihere, humiliated a young journalist who trolled them.
The news anchor at Metro TV maintains that if any woman has never been slut-shamed, she is not a woman.
According to her, any lady who is very loud especially should be called a prostitute. Either than that, that woman might be doing something wrong.
“For a woman, everything has to be sexualised. I always say this, if you are a woman and you have never been called ‘ashawo,’ then you are not a woman. If a woman, who is vocal and has not been called ashawo, you are probably doing something wrong,” she said.
“It’s the first go for them. I think they just feel emasculated. They feel like how dare her defend herself.”
