The topic of gender equality continues to divide opinions, with some viewing it as a lost cause while others see the need for a law granting women equal rights as their male counterparts to be implemented.

Cool FM OAP, Freeze who appears to be a staunch advocate of the impossibility of the act had earlier voiced his support for the wife of Ooni of Ife, Olori Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi who said men and women can’t be equal because each gender has its pivotal roles to play in life while recently speaking at the Emerging Women’s Forum in Maryland, USA.

Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo has also addressed Olori Wuraola’s sentiments, disagreeing that it is impossible to successfully implement gender equality.

‘Dear Olori, The reason you can hold a microphone and speak in public rather than at the backyard of the palace cooking jollof rice while your husband travels the world, is because of women like you who fought for us to live life and enjoy it equally like anyone else,’ Uche wrote on Instagram.

‘Your Royal Highness, do not be deceived, your belief in this revolution has absolutely no bearing in its movement. Stand tall, behind the king, watch as more women understand this concept, watch as they break the glass ceiling, reaching straight for the moon… and beyond…in their Louboutins.

‘If I work for 3 hours and a man works for 3 hours, we both deserve to get paid the same,’ and ‘If a man’s virginity cannot be tested on the wedding night, mine shouldn’t be tested as well’ are some of the points the actress used to drive home her call for equality.

Uche further assumed the Queen was probably talking about the roles men and women play in the society as opposed to the real objectives of gender equality.

‘FYI let’s not mistake gender roles for gender equality. I believe she was clearly talking about roles / responsibilities as a woman hence my repost about learning the right meaning of Gender equality.’

I have always said it…we HAVE to first understand what #genderequality is before the #genderequalitybill will make sense … #Repost @diaryofanaijagirl with @repostapp ・・・ Dear Olori, The reason you can hold a microphone and speak in public rather than at the backyard of the palace cooking jollof rice while your husband travels the world, is because of women like you who fought for us to live life and enjoy it equally like anyone else . Please see below a summary of what the fight for gender equality is about: .. **If I work for 3 hours and a man works for 3 hours, we both deserve to get paid the same **A woman can now decide that, Marriage shall mean Partnership, Friendship, companionship as well as Passion; not slavery **I am not better, wiser, stronger, more intelligent, or more responsible than a man. Likewise, I am never less **If a man’s virginity cannot be tested on the wedding night, mine shouldn’t be tested as well **Because my husband has authority in my home does not make me inferior. We are both equal in essence and worth. Our responsibilities are just different **It means that my character/behaviour is solely guided by my principles not by society’s expectation of how I “should” behave **It means that I can wear a crown too! Ask Queen Elizabeth . Your Royal Highness, do not be deceived, your belief in this revolution has absolutely no bearing in its movement. Stand tall, behind the king, watch as more women understand this concept, watch as they break the glass ceiling, reaching straight for the moon… and beyond…in their Louboutins FYI let’s not mistake gender roles for gender equality. I believe she was clearly talking about roles / responsibilities as a woman hence my repost about learning the right meaning of Gender equality.uj
