The wave of advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes, otherwise known as feminism has been dominating discourses across different fora in recent times. And the advent of the social media has in more ways imaginable added fuel to the conflagration consuming the sexes.
While many Nollywood women have joined the fray, beating drums of war to lend their support and full weight behind the movement, few like Innocenthia Ihebie would rather toe the conservative way and let the men take the wheel while she enjoys the ride.
“When I am in love I am the overly submissive kind of woman but only when in love,” she said when asked in a chat with Potpourri on the kind of woman she is when in a romantic relationship.
When goaded on the issue of feminism in view of her submitting totally to a man,, the Open University graduate explained what feminism means to her and it may be a bit disappointing to the hardcore feminists who believe women should stand toe-to-toe with men.
“I don’t believe in those things, all I know is women should be respected, loved and cared for. The moment I find a man who does these things to me, that’s it, I’m hooked. Feminism or gender equality has cost many people their marriage. You should know your duties in your home as a woman and same goes for the man. Whether we like it or not, the man still remains the head. God brought us in to be help-mates not co-workers,” she said.
Centhia has featured in so many movies that she could not reel them out off hand but most memorable ones to her include ‘Sex and Love’, ‘Pay Back Is A Woman’, and a series titled ‘Pulse’.
