Popular Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji, has openly identified herself with the feminist movement.
The actress in an interview with Women and Hollywood Magazine, a media organisation that educates, advocates, and agitates for gender diversity in Hollywood and the global film industry, said she is a feminist and proud of it. She called on other women to wake up and stop feeling self-conscious and ashamed of their womanhood.
Miss Nnaji said, “I’m a proud feminist who embraces her femininity. I feel sometimes women are made to feel self-conscious and ashamed of their womanhood.
“Perhaps like “Wonder Woman,” we may wake up one day to discover that it is our superpower, and then we would be unstoppable.
“History has shown that in almost every situation where a group of people or a demographic is being oppressed, it’s usually because the oppressors are threatened by the potential of the oppressed to be great.
“I’m happy women all over the world are discovering their superpower and turning “why me?” into “not me.”
