Monalisa Chinda wants women to quit provoking their husbands
In recent times, the number of women who have fallen victims of domestic violence has spiraled and conversations on the spate have become all too important.
Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda got the chance to weigh in on the topic when she appeared on comedian Okey Bakassi’s satirical news show, The Other News.
Chinda said, “As much as I detest all forms of violence against women and men, women should quit provoking their man by beating punches and slaps. I’m a domestic violence [enthusiast]. I always research when I hear fresh stories about domestic violence. Half the time, it is the women. God just gave us this running Okra mouth. Women, don’t fight with people who are stronger than you.”
She concurred with the opinion of the Lagos State Commissioner of Women Affairs, Lola Akande who commented on the topic weeks ago naming gullibility, verbal insults and other factors on the part of women as the drive for domestic violence.
