Her Majesty, Queen Wuraola-Zynab Ogunwusi of Ile Ife, believes that gender equality is hardly achievable in the modern world.
While speaking at the Emerging Women Forum on Thursday, June 16, the queen said, “I am not a huge fan of gender equality. We can’t be equal, We can’t be men. We have our roles to play here, a very pivotal one.”
She enjoined women to stick to their lanes and stop trying to fight for power with their male counterparts.
“The modern pattern of feminism has succeeded in limiting women of the heights they could reach; gender equality is unrealistic.”
“We can never be equal with men, we are here for a great purpose, we have our roles to play we are powerful and we are a force of nature.”
“Relationships are suffering today, because women want to be men. You want to be treated like a queen, but you don’t carry yourself like a Queen.”
“I want you all to remember as women, that we are powerful people. We are here for a greater purpose.”
