The weekly radio show that was aired on AMAM radio this Friday 19th November raised the issue of envy and the tendency by some women to bring other women down, with shaming, bullying,disrespect, and other derogatory attitudes. .
So, Regine Nguini Psaila, Lorraine Fotso and Precious Atigolo wanted to create a positive environment where women become a block to win their common challenges.
Bullying is the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature, according to a definition by wikipedia. . It can be accompanied by intimate photos, sexist and racist insults but also cyberflashing (receiving pornographic content against one's will).
Psaila explained that cyberflashing can have consequences for women's lives. It causes stress, anxiety, and trauma.
Atigolo told of the pleasure that some women express at the misfortunes of bullying experienced by other women. “Some are even ready to pay to see the humiliating video or photo” She said.
For Fotso, society points the finger at women more easily than at men. For example, it is frowned upon for a woman to remarry after the death of her late husband.
Solutions suggested during the show were for women to help each other, in a society that is already against them due to their gender. They should avoid bullying, jealousy, and stop criticizing. They can share experiences but keep each other's secrets.
But the most important thing is to remain positive and honest with yourself.
