What you need to know:

  • The Joseph Epsteins of this world not only work to bring down women but they also subconsciously, plant seeds of doubt in most women’s minds, manifesting as the imposter syndrome- a psychological phenomenon where one doubts their accomplishments and talents; in the fear that they will be exposed as a fraud whilst thinking that they do not deserve all they have achieved.
  • Imposer syndrome victims believe in the notion that their success is a matter of luck and not necessarily their hard work, indeed a lie, because women put their blood, sweat, and tears to accomplish these academic milestones.

Are you a real doctor? Is your medical degree real? These are questions I often find myself encountering both in the online and physical spaces despite the fact that I am a qualified medical doctor and a holder of two master’s degrees- an MBA, and an MSc. Global Health Policy, from well-recognized institutions globally, while currently pursuing a law degree as I lay my foundation for a PhD- see what I did there? Yes, I just stated facts, facts about my academic qualifications, yet, many times, I am made to justify these credentials, of course, mostly to misogynistic proponents that hold and propel the ideology for hatred or contempt against women, often than not, those who identify women as being inferior to men.
