Top actress Genevieve Nnaji has openly declared that she is a feminist.
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 proud feminist who embraces her femininity.
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.
“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.”
When asked if she had any advice for other female directors, she replied: “I don’t consider myself qualified enough yet to give advice, to be honest, and so I say this to my peers as I say to myself daily: eliminate fear and self-doubt”.
