April 24, 2016 – Nollywood Actress Foluke Daramola: I Don’t Believe In Gender Equality, A Man Should Be A Step Ahead Of The Woman

Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola recently shared her take on Gender equality in a quick chat with TS Weekender.

When asked to share her view on Gender Equality Bill, the actress said:

“I’m sorry I don’t think men and women should have equal rights in this case. I think the male should have more than the female, but it should be with proportion, maybe on a ration of 60 to 40.

The reason why I think so is because we women tend to be extremely domineering when it comes to issues and sometimes sentimental. Men can be detailed even though we are sometimes. So, there are proportions in all these things.

The role of a man can never be over emphasized. Even though I’m a woman rights activist, I still believe in the place of a woman and a man. The man is suppose to be a step ahead of the woman; you can never take that away.”

Do you agree with her?

  1. This woman should be considered in the next batch of National Awards. She said one truth that no sincere person will dispute: women tend to be extremely domineering. This is the reason why most men wish to be richer than their wives. The moment the woman becomes the bread winner of the house, it tends to intoxicate her. She would always argue or disagree with the husband. She would want to spearhead the house while the man is still there. Of course I know that a few women are exceptions, but the ratio is not encouraging at all.

    I’d never known that any woman would admit this. In short, madam, for saying this truth, you will live long.

    The reason why most men want to be richer than their wives is

  2. Yes, i agree with her. Without saying much, a little opportunity given to a woman can lead to over domineering. If its a 40 to 60, then its quite okay.

  3. NO NATIONNAL AWARD FOR ONE WHOSE NOT A ROLE -MODEL-SOMEONE WHO MADE 3 INNOCENT CHILDREN TO BE FATHERLESS- KIDNAPPED THEIR FADA IN BROAD-DAY LIGHT AND MADE A LEGALLY MARRIED WIFE GO SORROW .NATIONAL AWARD KO NATIONAL AWARD NI . MY OPINION – GENDER EQUALITY ISN,T CALLED 4 BCOS D BIBLE MADE IT SO CLEAR THAT D MAN IS D HEAD OF D WIFE . GENDER EQUALITY STARTED WHEN MEN BEGIN TO SEE THAT WOMEN MUST WORK AND ALSO SHARE D HOME RESPONSIBILITIES .IF D MAN PAYS D RENT OF D HOUSE AND D WOMAN BUYS D FURNITURES IN D HOUSE THEN ITS EQUALITY !D MAN PAYS D CHILDRENS SCH FEES AND D WOMAN FEEDS D FAMILY ,THEN EQUALITY DWELLS IN D FAMILY .A WOMAN CAN ONLY HELP ,WHERE SHE MUST DO THESE THINGS -THEN EQUALITY IS INEVITABLE .THESE DAYS DIVORCE MEANS NOTHING TO D MEN AGAIN BCOS DURING AND AFTER , D WOMAN CARRIED 50 -60% OF D EXPENSES . WHY DO U THINK D BIBLE SAYS ” A MAN WHO CAN NOT PROVIDE 4 HIS FAMILY IS WORSE THAN AN INFIDEL “? WHO WANTS TO HV AN INFIDEL AS D HEAD OF A HOUSEHOLD ?IT IS PURE AND LOGICAL – THOSE MEN WHO ARE 75 -80% RESPONSIBLE TO THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES ARE NEVER AND CAN NEVER BE EQUALS WITH WOMEN ! ANYTHING LESS IS EQUAL ! BUT HE WHO DOES NOTHING IS A CURSED INFIDEL !

  4. I agree with u foluke if equality is declared, women will really advantage of it. Even d bible declare man as d head I don’t no y they are disturbing themselves.

  5. Foluke Daramola you are not intelligent at all. You are not a giant breasted empty head who sits back and let a man do all the work, that’s why you enjoy such topic. Monkey dey work fat pomo dey chop in the name of inequality. Idiot keep your lazy long throat opinion to yourself and let the world speak for themselves. A real man never feels threatened by Hus wife’s position. No woman is less than a man. A man is the head of the home, not better than a woman. What is the head without the body? The cannot function without the body. If the organs don’t function the body head will be useless. And the head&body are same, one soul. The notion that men are better human beings than women has lead a lot of men into hell. Degrading the foundations of WOMANHOOD is a device of the devil that has lead many many men into hell. False pride and conceit gets no man anywhere. Whereever you are, if you believe you are better than a woman because you were born with an okro sprout, then hell is your destination. No human who thinks highly of himself will see God. Being the head of a home or a bread winner doesn’t make you better than your PARTNER. God said a man is the head of a family for balance. He did not say men are better than women. Cab you dare go round telling every married woman, hey you are lower than me, you are also a little bit above the animals because I have a prick inside my trousers? No body will tell the husband of that woman to beat you before he does. In some instances you might lose your life for degrading or mocking another man’s wife. MEN YOU ARE HEADS OF YOUR HOME NOT BETTER THAN YOUR WIFE NOR ANY OTHER WOMAN. YOUR WOMAN ACCORDS YOU RESPECT OUT OF LOVE NOT COS U ARE BETTER THAN HER AS A HUMAN BEING NOR BECAUSE SHE IS A SLAVE. IF YOU TINK IN YOUR HEART YOU ARE BETTER THAN YOUR WIFE OR FELLOW HUMAN, THEN YOU ARE IN DANGER OF HELL. A LOT OF TRADITIONS ARE MAN MADE. ARE YOU GOD THAT CREATED WOMAN THAT YOU CAN DETERMINE SHE IS LOWER THAN YOU? EVEN IN THE WORLD FIRST BORN POSITION DOES NOT GANRANTEE YOU ARE BETTER THAN YOUR SIBLINGS, WETHER AS A SIBLING OR HUMAN BEING. SAYING YOU ARE BETTER THAN THEM IN ANYWAY IS A SIN TOO. MANY YOUNGER ONES DO BETTER AND BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN THEIR ELDER BROS OR SIS. SO WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL YOU ARE BETTER THAN SOMEONE ELSE’S CHILD WHO AGREED TO MARRY YOU, BE THAT HELPER, LOVER AND SUPPORTER IN YOUR LIFE. YOU DARE MOCK OR MISTREAT A WOMAN WHO AGREED TO HONOUR YOU. GOD WILL PUT ALL SUCH MEN IN THEIR PLACE ON THE LAST DAY. LOVE IS MEANT TO MAKE YOU WOMAN LET YOU LEAD, FOR BALANCE, IT DOESN’T MAKE YOU MORE INTELLIGENT NOR BETTER AS A HUMAN BEING. STATICALLY A LOT OF MEN ARE CLUMSY, DISORGANISED WITH LOWER IQ. FEWER WOMEN ARE SO. THE CYCLE OF HATE AND BELITTLING ONLY GOES ON BECAUSE OF BAD PARENTING, CREATING MAMA’S BOYS INSTEAD OF SYMPATHETIC, LOVING REAL MEN TOWARDS THE PAINS, DEJECTION AND SUFFERING OF WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD. REAL MEN STAND FOR GENDER EQUALITY. INEQUALITY DOES NOT EVEN EXIST, ONLY BRAINWASHED WOMEN SUCCESSFULLY MADE TO BELIEVE SO BY SELFISH MAN MADE LAWS CREATED BY FOOLS WHO FELT THREATENED BY A WOMAN’S INTELLIGENCE. SUCH MEN MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR WOMAN TO DISPLAY THE MORAL&INTELLECTUAL GIFTS GOD ALMIGHTY DEPOSITED IN THEM, BY CREATING DIFFICULT SITUATIONS WHERE WOMEN STRUGGLE TO FEED THEIR DAUGHTERS/SONS/BROTHERS/SISTERS EXCEPT THROUGH PROSTITUTION. A SAD SITUATION CREATED BY EVIL MEN WHO ARE ONLY SATANIC INSTRUMENTS OF THE DEVIL. EVEN THE DEVIL KNOWS THE WORTH OF A WOMEN IN THE LIFE AND HOUSEHOLD OF A MAN, THAT’S WHY HE TRIES TO MAKE A MAN MORE FOOLISH&WICKED TO THEIR GIFT FROM GOD. THE FUNNY THING IS THAT EVEN THESE WICKED MEN ARE READY TO DIE ON TOP OF A WOMAN THEY CALL NOBODY. NO MATTER HOW WE DECEIVE OURSELVES, A MAN IS PRIVILEGED TO HEAD HIS HOUSE BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE HIM BETTER THAN HIS WIFE AS A HUMAN BEING NOR WHATEVER. GOD CRATED MAN AND WOMAN AND HE CREATED THEM EQUAL. DO NOT BE DECEIVED. EVE WAS EVEN MORE IN CONTROL BECAUSE OF HER SPECIAL POSITION BUT TO CREATE A BALANCE AFTER THE FALL OF MAN, GOD MADE THE LOVE OF A WOMAN MORE CONCERNED TOWARDS HER HUSBAND NEEDS, THOUGHTS AND WELL BEING. SHE IS YOUR HELPER NOT YOUR SLAVE. THE EVE IN HER SUMMITS OUT OF LOVE NOT OUT OF LOWER SELF ESTEEM NOR SLAVERY. SO YO ALL IMMATURE MEN OUT THERE STOP DECEIVING YOURSELVES, YOU CAN’T TRY THE NONSENSE YOU DO TO YOUR WIVES OUTSIDE YOUR HOME TO ANOTHER WOMAN. YOUR WOMAN IS BUILT TO TAKE YOUR STUPIDITY BECAUSE GOD FORESAW A LOT OF YOU WILL BE SPOILT BY YOUR MISGUIDED FATHERS. I DARE YOU TO GO ABOUT TELLING ANY WOMAN YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE BETTER THAN HER. BY THE TIME THE REAL WOMAN OUT THERE PUTS YOU IN YOUR PLACE, YOU WILL BREAK DOWN IN TEARS. GO BACK TO YOUR WIFE AND SAY ‘HONEY THANK YOU FOR MAKING ME A MERE FELLOW MAN, FEEL LIKE A KING EVEN THOUGH YOU TOO ARE A QUEEN AND DESERVE RESPECT LIKE ME’. FOOLISH PRIDEFUL CONCEITED MEN OUT THERE, REPENT AND STOP BEING IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE. YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN A WOMAN, JUST ACCORDED A HONOUR AS THE HEAD OF YOUR OWN HOME ONLY, BOT HEAD OF THE WOMEN IN THE WORLD AND YOU ARE TO ACCORD YOUR WIFE THE HONOUR OF BEING THE KEEPER OF YOUR HOME, HEALTH, CHILDREN, WISDOM, ORGANIZER, COMFORTER ETC SHE DOES MORE THAN YOUR WETHER WORKING CLASS OR NOT. SHE THINKS OUT MORE COMPLEX MATTERS AND FINDS EASIER SOLUTIONS. IF YOU DON’T VALUE YOUR WOMAN, OR CAN LOOK DOWN ON HER EQUALITY, THEN YOU DIDN’T FIND YOUR SOULMATE AT ALL.

    ASK YOUR JOYSTICKS IN AFRICA WHY THE WHITE MEN ARE DOING BETTER THAN YOU. THEY ARE BLESSED BECAUSE THEY VALUE & RESPECT THEIR WOMEN MORE. BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T ALLOW THE EVIL OF GENDER INEQUALITY COME INTO THEIR SHORES. THEIR WOMEN PROVIDE MORE MATHEMATICAL INTELLIGENCE, SOLUTIONS, INVENTIONS, SCIENCES ETC WHICH CONTRIBUTE TO THE GROWTH OF THEIR ECONOMY, STANDARDS OF LIVING ETC MOST OF THE PHONES YOU AFRICAN MEN FLAUNT TO YOUR WOMEN ARE MADE BY FOREIGN WOMEN AND GIRLS. WITHOUT THESE FEMALES YOU WOULD NEVER DREAM OF MOST TECHNOLOGY. YOU ONLY DISGRACE YOURSELVES DOWN HERE CLAIMING FALSE SUPERIORITY THAT ONLY EXIST IN YOUR FANSTATY. DISRESPECT A WHITE WOMAN AND SEE IF HER HUSBAND WILL SPARE YOUR BARBARIC LIFE WHERE YOU ONLY EAT, SHITE, FUCK&SLEEP LIKE AN OVER GLORIED CHIMP. BETTER APPRECIATE YOUR WOMAN, ACCORD HER HER RIGHTS AND RESPECT, AND SEE IF THIS COUNTRY WONT MOVE FORWARD. STOP RUINING YOUR DAUGHTERS FUTURE. STOP KEEPING THE COUNTRY IN DARKNESS. STOP DECEIVING YOUR SONS. AND STOP LEADING THEM TO A LIFE OF POVERTY DUE TO LACK OF INVENTIONS&INTELLIGENCE. YOUR DAUGHTER MIGHT BE THE SAVIOUR YOU ARE LIMITING TO A LIFE OF MARITAL DESTITUTION, PLUS PROSTITUTION. ARE YOU SAYING YOU ARE BETTER THAN YOUR MOTHER, SISTERS AND WIVES? COME DOWN FROM THAT FAKE HIGH HORSE OF YOURS AFRICAN BOY. GROW UP! YOUR BLABBINGS AND PRIDE CANNOT CHANGE THE PRICE OF GARRI IN THE MARKET. STOP MAKING YOUR WOMEN FOOLISH AND TURNING AROUND TO SAY, YOU SEE? THAT ONLY MAKES YOU A POOR HUNGRY FOOL LIKE THE DEVIL WANTS.

  6. I agree only real men honour their wives because a women is the extended glory of a man. Only a real man knowsow you treat your woman is what you are!

  7. A lot of immature boys will want to argue that their blokos guarantees them superior. Does it guarantee them heaven? Can they posses a womb and carry a pregnancy for a day? Can they lose blood for 5 or 7 days and live? Can they organise a home and still hustle? For the records I am a man. A real man and I treat my wife as my equal. She loves and almost worship the ground I walk on. Boys cannot guarantee a woman like mine, only real men

  8. Any baga wey want comment say they better pass women, can hug the nearest transformer! Plenty full area! Small small boys if una like abuse run mouth like una only sabi do while country dey spoil, na una mamas and sisters una they degrade not the real women all ovet the world. As for me I no send weak fear fear man. Only a real man commands my attention and I too have such a good man wey better than any chauvinistic idiots on this forum.

  9. It is hard to turn a damaged man around. Many of us have been mislead to believe we are better than our women folks but Man equals Wo-Man and Men equals Wo-Men 50/50. Get it? We are same in the world before the eyes of God. In fact I believe there are more men in hell than women right now.

  10. Actress Foluke Daramola should shut up joor or speak for her self only. What do you expect from an old sugar girl with no fixed husband address? Ashawo looking for more customers.

  11. madam thank u for sayin d truth,but women no get respect o, how do u femele want to b equal wit male? so God dat created man to be “the head”did not knw something abi?God took only one rip from man to made woman and u people wants to b equal with man – asin what kwa nu? if i hear dat gender equality frm una mouth again i go jst burst una head from here.

  12. God bless actress Foluke Daramola for coming out straight about this issue that has been raising some unnecessary dust from many quarters.
    Maximum respect to Metu for that balanced comment.

    This goes to tell me that we still have some sensible women alive, not all of them are self deceit and crazy about nothing.

    They would come out to shout “ Gender Equality“ but deep down within some wise ones among them they knows that they are fighting for the wrong course, for what will never come to be and that all their efforts to undo what had been done right from the time of creation is like pouring some water on a Duck‘s back in the hope to make it wet.

    This is not even supposed to be an issue of contention. The fact is undebatable. Talking about gender equality is like challenging God Himself that you are wiser than Him Who made Man the head over a woman right from the begining.

    I take a stroll…

  13. I think the ratio of 55 to 45 will be the best, atleast 10 or 5% gap between men & women is not much. This is because men are taking that big gap between them and women for granted.

  14. Foluke Daramola,ur opinion does not count in this case though u said the truth.The last time I checked ur still a husband snatcher. Mchewwwwwww,next plsssss!

  15. I think the ratio of 55 to 45 will be the best, atleast 10 or 5% gap between men & women is not much. This is because men are taking that big gap between them and women for granted.

  16. Good a woman said the truth leave all those western delusional wanna bes..come to think of it what will the equality bill change? even if it’s signed this is Africa bitches, women are under men if you don’t like it go fuck yourself

  17. She may not be clean or pure herself but she has said the truth. People should not use her lifestyle to judge her opinion

  18. Though she z an activist just as wot she said earlier..
    It didn’t stop her 4rm bringing out d real fact and d truth…
    She z really a genuise and a good activist wen d need arise.
    Bravo!
