Popular Nigerian actress and filmmaker, Genevieve Nnaji, has caused a stir on social media following her statement about feminism.
The Guardian shared a quote in which the actress said feminism means she can do whatever she wants whenever she wants.
Genevieve Nnaji believes that the concept is basically about human rights.
“My own feminism is just human rights. I’m a woman who has rights to her own choices. I can do whatever I want whenever I want. It’s just that simple. If I were a man it would be the same thing”, she is quoted to have said.
Genevieve Nnaji’s comments have attracted conflicting opinions on social media.
Some people agree with her statement and feel women should be free to make choices without any external influences.
Others disagreed with her and stated that choices must be guided by many principles.
