Don't you just hate it when you work your a** 9off to build a career spanning 13 years and all people can do is refer to you as Mrs. so-and-so?
Well Enhle Mbali Maphumulo does and she made it known this past weekend when a publication shared their article featuring Enhle with the headline "Mrs Coffee reveals how she keeps her talent on the brew."
Enhle was quick to put the publication in check with this succint response.
Hi @SundayIndy as much as I love being with my husband my career of 13 years is separate from him. So please refer to me by my name. 🌺— Enhle Mbali (@enhlembali) March 19, 2017
@SundayIndy I have worked hard and as a feminist I cannot allow myself to be in a shadow. Tnk 4 the article love it❤️🌺❤️🌺— Enhle Mbali (@enhlembali) March 19, 2017
For many, "feminism" has become such a dirty word and often leads people to misunderstand the theory behind it and the important work done by the feminists of the world.
We LOVE the fact that Enhle claims her feminism so openly and used her platform to champion the cause (in addition to the countless other issues she sheds light on).
And we're not the only ones who love what Enhle did.
It would have been different if they had interviewed the Maphumulo's as a couple and referred to them as Mr. and Mrs. but in this case, her husband's name honestly had nothing to do with an article which was seemingly about her talent (as an actress) and her career.
Kudos to Enhle for speaking up!
