On Women and The Development of Patriarchy!

Our time is poised with a myriad of reasons as the most engrossing time to talk about gender equality and the feminist philosophy in relations to the female social ontology and male biases installed in our social norms through more than two thousand years of evolution.

THE IDEOLOGY OF MARRIAGE

I grew up in a semi-perfect home, as I like to put it. Both of my parents were involved in the day to day activities of the house; they even took turns cooking, depending on who was home on a particular day. For the record, my dad makes the best potato greens I’ve ever tasted….

More than a Victim

Puzzles of Women Coming Out After Being Abused

In the wake of the recent testifying of Professor Blasey Ford against supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, as well as other high-profile men, I have seen a lot of people on social media asking the most ridiculous question, “Why do they wait for so many years before coming out?” These people sided with the accused…

Liberia’s Drive to Macroeconomic Stability

When you hear the word “stability,” what comes to mind? I bet you start to think about synonyms like security, durability, safety, normality, reliability, firmness, and balance. In macroeconomics, stabilization refers to the reduction of a nation’s internal and external imbalances or simply finding the right balance with feasible macroeconomic policies. These balances, together with…
