It is an open secret that celebrities especially females suffer a lot of s3xual harassment in the entertainment industry which they don’t like talking about and Nollywood actress, Monalisa Chinda Coker has revealed why that is so.
The mother of one shared her thoughts recently in an interview with The Other News where she spoke on s3xual harassment in the movie industry, fear of stigmatization and the resultant effect on their careers
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.
Speaking on domestic violence, she admonished women saying:
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.
