Nigerian Actress, Kemi Lala Akindoju has reacted to the viral video where two men said sexualize a 5-year-old girl on bum short.
The actress wrote via her Twitter page:
They should start showing themselves! These men think a child in shorts is revealing her body sexually. This is just a sneak peek into the minds of the average Nigerian man. Yet we want Yaba male traders to stop harassing women. We have so much work to do! Sad!!!
I know some of us struggle with the term feminism but this is why we all need to be feminists. We are not fighting for equal rights yet. The girl child/woman is not on the same level as her male counterparts. Nobody’s fusses on boys ‘dressing properly’ or ‘sitting properly.-She added
Going further, she revealed that boys get abused too but no one blames it on what they are wearing.
Boys are also being abused by MEN & WOMEN (even though statistics say the men are still more). But does anyone accuse the boys of dressing indecently and being the cause for the rape/abuse? Can we see that the odds are already against the girl child? – She wrote
