Feminist group tackles Pete Edochie over ‘misogynistic rants’

The Nigerian Feminist Forum (NFF) has described as unreasonable the comments allegedly made by celebrated thespian, Chief Pete Edochie during an interview he granted to BBC IGBO.

In a statement by its Communications Officer, Angela Nkwo, NFF said Edochie in the interview “furthered his misogynistic rants concerning his views on Nigerian women in general.”

NFF, therefore, called on Edochie to immediately retract the comments, which it said grossly misrepresented his pedigree as an elder in the Nollywood community.

The women group also asked him to issue an apology for the gross misrepresentation and cause for concern he had provided for women to experience, tolerate and accept violence meted out to them by their husbands and partners.

The statement read in part: “The Nigerian Feminist Forum condemns the utterances by Chief Edochie who by his comments has displayed his misogynist tendencies, advocating for husbands to discipline their wives whilst harking back to a bygone era which is no longer feasible. We are in 2021.

“Edochie cast huge aspersions on being a Nigerian woman, its definition and expectations therein when he said feminism was the cause of spousal violence and that women’s reasoning was limited.

“His unsubstantiated claims ‘this thing called feminism, that’s what leads to women getting beaten in marriages. When you talk to a woman, she will respond to you. When she responds to you, you won’t be able to bear it so you’ll stretch out your hand and beat her up’, failed to accept or even understand the unwarranted sexual and gender based violence women face daily just going about their daily business.


“It is important that celebrities are careful with their utterances which can be seen as additional fodder for impressionable young persons to emulate.

“The reality is that these comments are highly unreasonable, and are an unnecessary generalisation on the rights of Nigerian women who are not monolithic beings.”

NFF said Edochie’s attempt to justify domestic violence, a practice that had resulted in the deaths of hundreds of women and girls was worrisome because many people looked up to him.

NFF said: “While we respect that he is entitled to hold his personal views for marriage proposals, we insist that as women, where we are involved, our spaces and agency must be respected.

“For the purposes of enlightenment, feminism is about demanding for gender equity, justice and access to equal resources for everyone, which will benefit families, communities and the wider society as a whole.”

The group called on Edochie to allow women to speak for themselves. It called on BBC Africa to provide the same space for women to debunk the claims made by Edochie.

It also called on actor’s guilds and professional bodies to begin to disassociate themselves from such utterances of their members, have penalties in place for erring members and take a concrete stand against sexual and gender based violence.

Feminist's get forum again...


But, this feminism of a thing is trash.
Women will always be below men, though that doesn't give men a reason to disrespect them.

How many women dey carry bag of cement for head.

If a car breaks down half way through a journey, how many women dey come down come fix am.

If war comes, how many women dey go warfront

As I said, women ought to be respected but at the same time, they should know that they'll always be below men

Meanwhile...

The guy has outlived his generation. No one, not even the men who support his views wants to live up to Pete's generations expectation. They only want to enjoy its perks while denying the associated responsibilities. If you doubt me, check their posts here. You will often see I hate liabilities, I will never spend a dime, Marriage is a scam and so on. Men like Pete were happy with their roles and responsibilities at that time but what about his young supporters? They only want half of Pete's lifestyle, where they get without giving.

Nigerians like they do everything else have ended up bastardizing the idea of feminism.

I don't see how being a wife and a mother has anything to do with equal access to job opportunities and societal structures, although such should not even be a thing to be demanded. Everyone is human and should have that equal rights in the society.

However when it comes to personal affairs, if you want to be the husband as a woman get yourself a lesbian to marry. That has nothing to do with feminism. It's even common sense, someone can't be feeding you and you'll be buzzing equality.

Nonetheless still, I won't disrespect my woman neither have her submissive. I would rather have a friend than a slave. But that's just me, doesn't make it our culture.

Pete Edochie is entitled to his own opinion. You either accept his opinion or you ignore.

Equalities in gender isn't an African thing, how many Nigerian women are in the battle field fighting Boko Haram? None!

Most of these women in this feminist group are very loyal to their husbands, they are willing to do what their husbands want them to do and are in this feminist group deceiving feeble minds.

A husband should be respected if he is older than you, stronger than you and also the breadwinner of the family.

The rate of divorce in Africa is alarming due to this copied western cultures. Men don't want to marry anymore thereby making our respected cultures obsolete.

Note that gender inequality is not same as misogynomy.

Ignore these insecured African Feminist Groups.

This kind of tackles is what has destroyed the ltttle stability and value our society enjoyed.

Divorce is high.
Baby mama is everywhere.
Fornication is breaking records.
Society are widely becoming ungovernable.

But feminist who know what she's doing still loyal to her husband. You cannot take what belongs to a man and a man cannot change to a woman. Is just what it is.

This vile creatures who believe their wretched opinion (s) matter should shut their mouth up.

Whatever they believe feminism is, is their problem. I know while they shout about equality and justice, and equal opportunity for everyone, if circumstances change, they'll be the first to shout women first and the usual women are fragile nonsense.

Pete Edochie made his opinion known, Period. An opinion that if examined critically, is the truth. When I was little, I can't remember hearing about domestic violence and what have you. Now this set of women who preach this vile nonsense came around, and with social media, domestic violence is now the oil doom in many marriages.

They should get lost and stay lost!.

Dem (feminist)no get respect for elders, so far u are a man and talk about the superiority of men, my problem with them is that if they are Christians, they’ll never see how Men was described as the head in their bible.. oyinbo has blindfolded them, we’re not saying that women are second fiddle, but they are no way to match men, this doesn’t make a man a superhero too because the Bible described women as weaker vessel, the comparative adjective “weaker “makes me understand that men are not strong either but women are weaker than them.. so we are both weak but men are superior

Pete Edochie was ranting like a crazy drunkard. Will he wish such treatment on his daughters in marriage. Old age can make some people senile. Maybe this is how Igbo people think of their wives not Nigerians in general.
