Waje lends her voice on Gender Equality

Waje has lent her voice on the controversy that trailed the gender equality bill that was rejected by the Senate. In a post on her IG page, the singer explains that the women clamour for equality with the men does not mean they want to usurp their rights. Read what she wrote below;

After yesterday's news on gender equality and the Senate, I feel compelled to talk about what exactly the problem is. The problem is not that women want to take over from men.
Gender equality is not about bashing men or shouting that a woman is better than a man. It's about the acknowledgement of the potential and contributions of women and the legal support and creation of opportunities for women to maximise their potentials in the same way men are allowed to. It is nothing to be terrified about, it is something to be cheered. We are all products of strong amazing women who have contributed in the most crucial ways to whomever we are today. Women are our mothers, our sisters, our wives, our friends, our supporters, our teachers. A woman should be given the opportunity
to be whatever she wants to be. It is not too much to ask...... Don't forget we are in this together to bring out the best of each other #5050
