Internet Hits Back At Lecturer Who Urged Women To Stop Studying So They Don’t Become Old Maids

The unpopular opinion of a lecturer has become viral after Twitter user @AnnaSoeraya shared the lecturer’s statement in a tweet several days ago.

“The lecturer said women who wish to pursue their Masters, they have to be engaged, if they wish to pursue their PhD, then they must be married. If they aren’t then they will not be marketable after because they will be labelled as old maids. My lecturer also said that those who pursue their PhD usually only want to become lecturers. And if you don’t end up being a lecturer, who would even know that you have a PhD?”

“So, my lecturer’s advice for women who say that they want to focus on their studies first and not think about marriage yet, is: ‘Please don’t do this. You need to be married before you become an old maid.’ There are also those who claim that the reason they aren’t married is because they haven’t met their soulmates. Well, if you don’t actively search for him then of course you won’t find him. Not everyone finds their soulmate without putting in any effort. Thanks.”

The tweet garnered a lot of feedback with many disagreeing with the unknown lecturer.

Even Dr Nur Amalina Che Bakri, the young woman who scored 17A1s in SPM in 2004, had something to say about this lecturer’s statement:

We don’t deny that being married is a good thing, but do you think people should rush into marriage just for the sake of being married? And is being married the only measure of success in life? Discuss!
