The work highlight the need to ease pressure mounted on them especially “first born’ ” of most African home since it put them under undue pressure to cater for orders.

The work equally combines Ghanaian traditional symbol which reiterate the overarching theme to appreciate the contribution of Women in Ghanaian homes.
