All The Amazing Nigerian Women Anto Lecky Paid Homage To For #IWD2019


Today March 4, is a day set aside to celebrate women all over the world. The International Women’s Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

To celebrate this special occasion Big Brother Nigeria Star, Anto Lecky is paying homage to 10 amazing Nigerian women who have excelled in their various fields while empowering others around them.

Anto dressed up as Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, Stella Adadevoh, Tiwa Savage and seven other inspriing women.  She shared the photos from the Women’s Day Project, which was brought to life by an all female crew, on her Instagram page and captioned it thus:

This International Women’s Day, I pay tribute to some Nigerian women who inspire me professionally and personally, who have been able to break barriers professionally, while dealing with personal issues impeccably. You should know who all of these women are already and if you don’t, now you do! Please research these and more women because they can inspire you as well.
I get asked if I’m a feminist. I’m more than a feminist; woman was brought to this world because man NEEDED her, woman brings LIFE to this world. Life CANNOT go one without woman. The sooner we all, women and men, accept this, we will reach gender equality.
