OMG!!! PLEASE TELL THIS IS NOT TRUE IN AFRICA! BREAST IRONING! + THE ENTREPRENUER

My daily blog talks about fashion, technology, bollywood and entertainment; but this time around I am angrily voicing my concern for women in Africa. How dare you iron your daughter's breast to stop teenage pregnancy? This is practice occurring in Cameroon.

What do you say readers? Are you from Cameroon or other areas in Africa where this problem exists?

On a lighter Note here is an Advert from the upcoming Entreprenuer Show in Nigeria. I guess this will be competiting with Dragon's Den



What are you thoughts?

I was frustrated, when i read about the breast ironing on this other blog. I just couldn't do anything after i read it, i kid u not, it was very, very disturbing. I honestly wish I can do something about it, unfortunately I can't. But this has to stop now. Africa has a long way to go. What is going on in Africa, is it illiteracy, joblessness, or straight wickedness that makes them do things like this. Africa is very backward in a lot of things, that I often wonder if they will ever change, which starts with mindset and from homes. I hope African women can stand up and go against such practice.

I can't believe this is for real, first it was mutilation of the vagina and now this. Ignorance is destroying our continent. We need to stand up and do something about this injustice towards women.
