A statement by the wife of the Ooni of Ife, Olori Wuraola Ogunwusi, standing against gender equality has set the Nigerian twitter on fire.
Wuraola while speaking at the Emerging Women’s Forum in National Harbor, Maryland, said men and women can never be equal because their roles differ.
“I am not a huge fan of gender equality because we can’t be equal. We can’t be men. We have our own role to play, a very pivotal one. And we keep going about doing this forums of gender equality, its like a dance, everyone is beginning to dance, what a man can do a woman can do better!
But how about if we think about it this way that we are limiting our potentials and where we could get to as women by us keep saying that we want to be equal. I don’t think we can ever be equal”
