Popular Nollywood actress and Movie Producer, Monalisa Chinda, in a recent interview revealed that women suffer far too much sexual harassment in the movie industry and she pin-pointed on the reasons behind why this dastard act is swept under the carpet at the end of the day. 

She also enlightened actresses on what steps to take when such acts occur again.

“It’s a bit uncomfortable for someone to come out and say I was cornered to sleep with a producer because of a role. They keep quiet about it because of their careers. Apart from that, the society stigmatizes these women. So you just swallow your pride. When you are outside the shores of Africa, women are heroes for coming out to speak about sexual abuse, but here”.

On domestic violence, the actress had the following to say:

“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.”
