#GEOBill: Stella Damasus urge women to speak out

Parliament. (Duncan Alfreds, Fin24)Lagos - Nollywood actress Stella Damasus is tired of the lackadaisical attitude of some women and in her latest  post on her website, she is urging women to do more than put posts on Twitter and Facebook and actively speak out after a bill seeking Gender Equality was rejected by the Senate on Tuesday.
She blamed women for  not interested in getting their hands dirty and doing the work.

Stella Damasus said that until women take drastic actions like shutting down markets, banks, schools, and denying men sex maybe the men will be forced to do what must be done.
The Nigeria Senate on Tuesday blocked a bill seeking equal marital rights for women.
The bill, titled “Gender Parity and Prohibition of Violence against Women”, was presented by Abiodun Olujimi, representing Ekiti south, during the senate’s plenary session.
According to Olujimi, the bill would seek equal rights for women in marriage, education and job.
