Domestic violence thrives where women seek equality with men — Beauty Istifanus, ex-beauty queen


It is no longer news that women, the world over, now crave equal rights and privileges with their male counterparts, but former Miss Ambassador for Peace and ex-beauty queen, Beauty Istifanus, will never toe such line.

In a chat with  Potpourri, the Kaduna State-born damsel who recently condemned gender equality on social media and still unapologetic about her opinion, maintained that women should accept their divine status as helpmates and be submissive to the male folk at all times.

“Gender equality is not possible in this part of the world because men are superior to women. This is my own opinion and I’m unapologetic about it”, she said.

She added that most women are not submissive which is why their husbands turn them to punching bags.

“The major cause of domestic violence in homes today is the unwillingness of the wife to be submissive to her husband, thereby bringing friction between them. My advice to women is that they should be submissive to their husbands and in return they will be respected”, she said.

Speaking further, she spoke about how she hopes to groom young girls to become useful to their families and the entire nation.

“I’ve a project on the girl-child education, which will continue to help young girls get back to school and become useful to their families and the nation at large. When a girl is educated she brings glory to her family. I’m using this opportunity to call on the government to ensure that every child is back to school because it will help curb some future vices in our society”, she said.
