Veteran Nigerian actress, Genevieve Nnaji, has explained that to her, feminism is all about fundamental human rights.
The Lionheart movie producer joined the growing list of female celebrities who have voiced their opinions on what true feminism should means when she spoke at the London School of Economics Africa Summit.
“My own feminism is just human rights. I’m a woman who has rights to her own choices; I can do whatever I want whenever I want. It’s just that simple if I were a man it would be the same thing,” Nnaji said.
“At the end of the day I was born alone, I’m going to die alone, I breathe alone. So I definitely have the right to how I want to live my life, and as a woman, the fact of the matter is no one needs to tell me otherwise.”
The summit is acclaimed to be a reputable platform where professionals, policy makers, corporate bodies and students converge to proffer solutions addressing Africa’s pressing issues.
The two-day event also hosted Ozwald Boateng, a British fashion designer of Ghanaian descent.
It also featured panel discussions on social topics such as financial inclusion, African unity, and promoting renewable energy in Africa.
