Nollywood actress and mother of one, Monalisa Chinda has shared her thoughts about s3xual harassment in Nigeria especially in the movie industry.
Monalisa who spoke in an interview with The Other News highlighted on s3xual harassment, fear of stigmatization and the resultant effect on their careers as actors.
It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role. They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatizes these women. So you just swallow your pride. When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about sexual abuse, but here.
While on domestic violence, she cautioned:
As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man by beating punches and slaps. .
I’m a domestic violence [enthusiast]. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Half the time, it is the women. God just gave us this running Okra mouth. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.
