The mentality of men being more superior to women has translated into many issues in society today. Considering this mindset, many people tend to get uncomfortable when a woman is placed in a position where she holds a higher station than her man.

This episode of Purple 50/50 seeks to address this, and find out how people deal with the idea of a woman making more than her man. The Purple 50/50 Challenge was created to challenge these sort of stereotypes and to enlighten Nigerians about gender issues.

Courtesy of the Purple 50/50 organisers, Pulse team visited Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Enugu, asking people the same question: "Is it OK for women to earn higher than their husbands?"
