Nollywood actress and single mother of one, Genevieve Nnaji has taken time out to explain her own kind of feminism which she describes as one rooted in human rights.
The actress who revealed that much while speaking at a summit also said everyone has a right to live life just the way they desire it to be.
“I think my own feminism is just human rights.I am a human who has a right to having choices.I can do whatever I want, whenever I want. It’s just that simple. If I were a man, it will be the same thing,” she said.
“At the end of the day, I was born alone, I will die alone, I breathe alone, so I definitely have rights to how I want to live my life,” she added.
Genevieve’s comments comes months after she delivered a classic reply to an Instagram user who accused her of being a feminist moments after she posted a comment on her page over the thorny issue of sexual harassment.
The actress in her post spoke about men sexually harassing women yet blaming the woman for bringing it upon herself through her dressing.
Genevieve also went ahead to talk about consent and said it isn’t women’s fault that men aren’t raised to control themselves.
