Nollywood Actress Foluke Daramola believes "a man should be a step ahead of a woman"

Foluke Daramola is a self proclaimed feminist who advocates for "women's rights". However the vocal actress revealed in an interview with New Telegraph that she does not support men and women having equal rights. This is what she said:

"I’m sorry I don’t think men and women should have equal rights in this case. I think the male should have more than the female, but it should be with proportion, maybe on a ratio of 60 to 40. The reason why I think so is because we women tend to be extremely domineering when it comes to issues and sometimes sentimental. Men can be detailed even though we are sometimes. So, there are proportions in all these things. The role of a man can never be over emphasized. Even though I’m a woman rights activist, I still believe in the place of a woman and a man. The man is supposed to be a step ahead of the woman; you can never take that away."

Did this feminist just call women domineering and so should not be trusted with equal rights? What about all the dominant male tyrants like Idi Amin, Abacha and the likes? Yes the role of a man can
never be over emphasized but so is the role of a woman! In fact in many families today, the WOMAN is the bread winner or contributing as much as the man financially. Let's not get started on how we sacrifice our bodies, time and EVERYTHANG to raise children(both male and female).

We are not asking to be the dominating partner...no one should. We just want to earn the same as our male counterparts, be treated fairly in the unfortunate case of a divorce, be respected even if we are single etc. Girl please take several seats.
