The Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji has shocked lots of her fans as she publicly declared her status as a feminist and he said to be proud of it.
She 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.”
Genevieve Nnji was interviewed by Women and Hollywood Magazine, a media organisation that educates, advocates, and agitates for gender diversity in Hollywood and the global film industry.
When asked to name her favourite woman-directed film and why. Genevieve Nnaji said;
“Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman.” It was powerful and strong, and at the same time, feminine and sexy.
Speaking on the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, she said: “How quickly the oppressed have risen to the top, and yet the train has not stopped. If anything, they continue to create amazing content.”
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.”
