Read Uche Combo reaction to Olori Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi’s sentiment below :
‘Dear Olori, The reason you can hold a microphone and speak in public rather than at the backyard of the palace cooking jollof rice while your husband travels the world, is because of women like you who fought for us to live life and enjoy it equally like anyone else.
‘Your Royal Highness, do not be deceived, your belief in this revolution has absolutely no bearing in its movement. Stand tall, behind the king, watch as more women understand this concept, watch as they break the glass ceiling, reaching straight for the moon… and beyond…in their Louboutins.
‘If I work for 3 hours and a man works for 3 hours, we both deserve to get paid the same,’ and ‘If a man’s virginity cannot be tested on the wedding night, mine shouldn’t be tested as well’ are some of the points the actress used to drive home her call for equality.
‘FYI let’s not mistake gender roles for gender equality. I believe she was clearly talking about roles / responsibilities as a woman hence my repost about learning the right meaning of Gender equality.’
