Over the past few years, Nigerian women started calling for gender equality in the society. Although not many people, especially men, are comfortable about this, advocates continue to hold a conversation around the subject matter.
Recently, celebrities took to their social media pages to lend their voices to the call for gender equality in Nigeria. Many shared photos of them or a family member contributing their quota to the discussion around the gender topic.
Actor Richard Mofe-Damijo popular called RMD has also lent his voice to this conversation. The media personality took to his official Instagram page to call for gender equality.
RMD shared a photo of him doing dishes in his kitchen and also went on to share a personal story of him as a child.
According to him, he was an only child, and being in that position did not give him any choice than to do house chores. He stated that he was raised by his mother to do all chores.
“..so the issue of only the wife (woman) should cook, clean, wash might be alien to me but I know it is not to most men, which is why today I join my voice to the #HeForShe campaign and remind our men that #GenderEquality is not just in the workplace but at home,” he said.
The film star noted that men can contribute their quota at home and find a good balance between office work and house chores, especially during this lockdown period.
