It Is Toxic —Actress Bimbo Akintola Condemns Feminism
Nigerian actress Bimbo Akintola has condemned the idea of feminism and distanced herself from it.
The Nollywood thespian described herself as a humanist, not a feminist. She said her passion is for the girl-child and women.
“My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist,” the beautiful screen diva told Premium Times.
“I don’t like this feminist idea because I think there’s a focus on this wing of feminism that is extreme. It’s toxic. I don’t want to be part of that. I want us to realise that you care about humans if you say you are a humanist.”
“That means every individual: boy, girl, woman, man; everybody. My niche is the women and the girl child because there is so much to do concerning this issue in Nigeria.”
The 52-year-old actress added that she performs best in movies that narrate the stories of women and the girl-child.
