Weighing in on the gender equality debate, Annie Idibia in an interview with 234stars noted that though she believes in women empowerment, she is not a feminist.
“No, not really but I believe in women empowerment. I believe that men are still Kings and women are queens. I don’t believe a woman is a king,” Annie responded when asked if she is a feminist.
As expected with issues relating to gender, there have been mixed reactions to her comment. While many feminists attacked her verbally, others, however, felt she had the right to have an opinion.
The Nollywood actress and singer 2baba’s wife defined feminism as an act of “rescuing oneself”. Guess she is trying to pass across the message that she needs no rescuing. Good for her!
