Former beauty queen, Adigwe Precious, has called on prominent Nigerian women to join the movement for the protection and empowerment of the female gender in the country, adding that the art of feminism is becoming isolated due to its wrong connotation.
Adigwe, in an exclusive chat during a media parley in Lagos State during the week explained that feminist is beyond gender equality, saying that the bravery and intelligent quest many females embarked upon in the past give them the feminist tag.
While adding that representing one’s true sexuality should not be a problem, Adigwe pointed out that feminism is the cry to be heard, for justified political participation, liberalised parental care on female children, family co-existence, respect in marriages and serenity in working environment and to dignify human experience.
“This is what we stand for and this is what we are preaching. If I can give birth to a male child, my son must respect a female like me with love and care. If my elegance can create vibes of admiration from other gender, then my view must be heard.”
The beauty queen who is also the president of The Black Children Initiative said that creating dominance amidst of oppression is synonymous with raising new evil at condemnation of pains, adding that “the males are indispensable anchor, our meticulous aid to victory and our victory amidst the songs of triumph.’’
“This is why I am using this gathering to call on women in power; wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, Mrs Remi Tinubu, Dr Joe Okei Odumakin, Mrs Amina Doherty, Chimamanda Ngozie Adiche, Mrs Mo’ Abudu and others in the position of power that this is the time to breath their strength in the lives of younger women. We need their support and encouragement”, she added.
