Feminism Too Toxic, I Prefer Humanism – Actress Bimbo Akintola

Feminism Too Toxic, I Prefer Humanism – Actress Bimbo Akintola

Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola has carved a niche for herself, especially in movies that tell the stories of women’s plights and the girl-child.

The 51-year-old actress made her acting debut in Owo Blow (1995) and later starred alongside Richard Mofe-Damijo in Out of Bounds (1997).

She believes some of her movie roles have led her fans to think she is a feminist.

But, in an exclusive interview with Premium Times at a movie set in Ajah, Lagos State, the actress described herself as a humanist rather than a feminist.

“My passion for the girl-child and the women does not make me a feminist; I am a humanist.”

Further explaining why she alienates herself from the feminist ideology, the actress explained that feminism is a toxic ideology for her.

“I don’t like this feminist idea because I think there’s a focus on this wing of feminism that is extreme. It’s toxic. I don’t want to be part of that. I want us to realise that you care about humans if you say you are a humanist.”

“That means every individual: boy, girl, woman, man; everybody. My niche is the women and the girl child because there is so much to do concerning this issue in Nigeria”.
