Nollywood actress, Ada Ameh has shared her thoughts on the feminism movement. In a recent interview with The Nation, the talented actress described herself as a feminist and spoke on how it affects relationships.
She, however, added that this does not mean she doesn't want to have a man of her own. She went on to add that being a feminist doesn't mean one shouldn't submit to their partner as that is the Christian thing to do.
"I am a feminist but I am not that type of woman that would not love to have a man. Being a feminist doesn’t mean that there shouldn’t be a man. As a Christian, submitting yourself to your man doesn’t make you a fool,” she said.

Her words: “I can never regret having my child at 14. God forbid! The truth is that the ways of God are so different from the ways of man.
Just imagine me at this age if I am not married and don’t have a child. I am not saying marriage is the ultimate but we both know what I am talking about.”
