"Feminism has only one reason /definition … equal rights for women, there are countries women cannot drive , they can’t go out without a male chaperone, they can’t go to school , in Nigeria some children are married off, no education, that’s what feminism is about … it’s not about submission or cooking egusi soup …. Any woman who preaches feminism as hate for men is not a feminist but a misandrists."


"I agree with her.....As long as there's nothing pressing my neck, I am comfortable being a queen. God that created us Male and Female with different roles didn't make a mistake."


"Being a feminist is about advocating for the disapppropiation of women's rights. However equality does not mean sameness."


"For those of you actively trying to misunderstand her whilst pretending to not know that the idea of feminism has largely been sold short by some persons....well that is she's implying! Most acclaimed feminist have in recent times painted feminism to be a cuIt of women that cannot coexist with men...making it seem like to be a feminist you must abhor, disrespect and h@te men. She further said she's okay with the idea of a man being the king and she the queen as long as nothing unsettles her or hovers around her crown! Truth be told, true and correct feminism and it's concept must be retaught to women in Nigeria especially. Until then, don't blame women like Ini Edo for their stance!! Pleasant Sunday to anybody who will not be able to counter my opinion intelligently. This is all you'll get from me!"


"Up on till now people really don’t know what feminism is all about. The earlier you know feminism isn’t about degrading men the better for y’all. "


"So Ini really does not know the definition of feminism? Wow! Feminism has one definition; google it. It doesn’t mean one thing to dine and another thing to others. If you derail from the original meaning of feminism then what you’re practicing is not feminism but man hating rising from sheer ignorance."
