Veteran actresses, Kate Henshaw and Joke Silva have called for more women participation in politics.

They spoke in a recent interview with The Nation Newspaper at the launch of the Ebony Life Creative Academy (ELCA).

Kate Henshaw said: “I choose to challenge the stereotype that women cannot attain certain positions in politics.

“I choose to challenge the narrative that women belong in a certain part of the office or house. I choose to challenge the fact that women’s health should be a priority.”

The Ewa Ekeng Royal House (Cross River) born movie star continued, “I choose to challenge that there should be zero tolerance to violence against women.

“I choose to challenge anything that limits a woman from contributing her quota to the world, her environment and community because we are half-half, we are male and female so I choose to challenge any of those traditional practices such as female genital mutilation; I choose to challenge to speak your truth and to own up to the fact that being a woman is a wonderful thing.” She said.

On her part, Joke Silva said: “Yes I mean not in politics but other areas. We haven’t seen that leadership in politics but in other areas, banking, entertainment, the legal profession. Nigerian women have actually taken it up to, do we want more, yes definitely there is room for more”.
