“As A Man, It Is Not In My Place To Initiate Such Ideas” – Bisi Alimi Cancels March For Nigerian Women


UK Based Gay Rights activist, Bisi Alimi, had planned to march for Nigerian women against rape, domestic violence and child marriage on February 21st.

But he has cancelled his plans, saying his role is to engage fellow men on respecting women. He wrote:

“Many of you might have noticed that I have deleted my picture calling for a march to protest the increasing violence against women in #Nigeria. I did so not because I think it is not the best thing to do, I think we need one in Nigeria and we need NOW! But I also realised that as a man, it is not my place to initiate such idea. I will be with women and for women in Nigeria if such march is called by women. Until then, my role is to engage my fellow men on respecting the dignity of women. I am really sorry for not checking my privilege before making the video. #sorry #apology #nigeriawomenmarch #feminism.”
