Benedicta interviewing a parent of a girl child at the beach fish market at Y1pemso.

Girls were basically regarded as homemakers and people perceived the kitchen as the most suitable place for the girl but some parents over exaggerate this situation.  In view of this, parents who are not academically and financially endowed prefer to sponsor their sons in neglect of their daughters.  They are of the pessimistic view that girls could easily get pregnant along the line and drop out of school, hence, denying their girls from schooling.  - Benedicta Ahomah Bioh, UEW Home Economics Department
