Actress uche Ogbodo disagrees with Monalisa Chinda's take on domestic violence, says it can never be a woman's fault

Nollywood actress and single mother of one, Uche Ogbodo has come for her colleague, Monalisa Chinda Coker over her stand on domestic violence!

Last week, Monalisa granted an interview saying "Women should also be blamed for domestic violence".
Not happy with her opinion Uche Ogbodo took to her Instagram page to air her view. According to her, it can never be a woman's fault
She wrote:
First of all, society looks down on women who stay in abusive relationships and pities them for being “helpless” and “weak.” Domestic violence victims can’t be categorized into a stereotype, but range among all types of women. Yet society places a specific insecure, weak, vulnerable woman into the category of most likely to be in an abusive relationship.

Rather than ridicule or punish the man who commits the abuse, this wrong perception will fault the woman for putting up with it because she possesses these negative traits. Women are taught that it is our personality "traits" that got us into this problem, and therefore we feel we must solve it.

As a result, women are quick to blame themselves for why our significant other is acting so violently. We angered them, we upset them, we pushed their buttons — but none of this is true. It shouldn’t matter what you do or how you live your life, it is the man’s choice to react in a violent or physical way.

As little girls growing up, we learn fast to always be aware and to always be afraid. Girls are told to dress and act a certain way so as not to upset men, yet boys are not lectured on how to react when angry or treat women respectfully. A man’s anger is equal to his power, try and diminish it and you risk emasculating him. It is this gender stereotype that makes it easy for women to receive the blame for abusive relationships instead of the man. #mypointexactly #copied #domesticviolence #womenempowerment #youthempowerment

  1. My take on this is that,no matter how a woman runs her mouth,a man should not raise his hand to beat the woman.There better ways of dealing with a woman

  2. I agree. I think this is quite similar to what simi was talking about the other time,that men,especially Nigerian men have this sense of entitlement. If a fight ensued at home, n the husband is totally at fault, society expect the wife to still take the blame.
    So yes, the female gender has been stereotyped. But thank God for feminism-equal right.
    I'll just say, men should learn to control their anger n be patient with their wives. As long as you can control ur anger in front of an army officer, why shouldn't you be able to do same with ur wife?

  4. A man should not hit a woman no matter what she does, women too should learn to shut their mouth when they need to.
