I don’t need to be called a feminist to show I support women, says Shafy Bello
Nigerian actress, Shafy Bello, has said she doesn’t like being a feminist because such brings unnecessary competition between men and women in the society.
Speaking in a interview with Kikelomo Akanda-Owo on the latest episode of her YouTube series, “Real Talk With Kike,” the actress said that, however, does not imply she’s anti-womem.
“I’m a woman, do l need to to be? I’m a woman and I am there to support every course for women but l don’t say I’m a feminist,” she said.
She said society should care more about understanding the unique roles of men and women in the society than the debate on the superiority between them.
“I think we (women) can do anything. But at the same time reverse back, I’m also someone who believes that in a home, there’s a man and there’s a place for the woman,” she added.
“Don’t get me wrong, l have my power, l know who l am as a woman, but at the same time, I’m not in competition with any man. There’s no reason for it. All l know is that in a home, there’s a place for the wife, and the husband.”
