“A Female Child Is Not More Important Than A Child” – Yul Edochie
Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie has sparked a conversation on gender equality after he took to his social media handle to share his opinion about the importance of male and female children.
In a post on his official Instagram page, the actor stated that a female child is not more important than a male child and vice versa. He encouraged parents to treat all children with love, irrespective of their gender.
The post reads, “A female child is not more important than a male child. A male child is not more important than a female child. Treat all children with love. And be grateful to God for any one He gives you.”
The tweet has generated several reactions on social media, with many commending the actor for promoting gender equality. Some users also shared their personal experiences, citing instances where they were discriminated against based on their gender.
Gender inequality is a pervasive issue in many societies, with many people still subscribing to traditional gender roles and stereotypes. Girls are often denied opportunities to pursue education and careers, while boys are expected to conform to toxic masculine ideals.
The United Nations has recognized gender equality as a fundamental human right and has called for an end to all forms of discrimination based on gender. Efforts have been made to promote gender equality, including the implementation of policies and programs aimed at empowering women and girls.
