“Feminism isn’t something black people are known for. Today, our wives can’t even cook anymore. Women who can’t cook aren’t supposed to call themselves women. And feminism is what causes women to be beaten up in marriages. You complain to a woman and she retorts,” he had said.
However, Joke Silva in a virtual session set up by ‘Friends and Colleagues’ to celebrate the 75th birthday of the veteran Pete Edochie is of a different opinion. Joke was of the opinion that an abusive a person grew up from an abusive family.
“A statement like that leads us to ask the question, what is feminism and what is gender-based violence? Because both have been introduced in that statement,” she said.
“Feminism for me in the simplest form means to be treated equally, to treat each person equally, to treat each gender equally, to treat a man and a woman equally.”
Joke Silva cited a few bible quotations where men and women were treated the same. She also hammered that Jesus the savior was a feminist citing the adultress as an example.

If we look at Christ, for instance, I always say one of the greatest feminists is Christ and I’ll cite examples from the Bible. The first one is the woman caught indulging in adultery,” she added.
“According to Jewish law, that woman should have been stoned but Jesus said let anyone who hasn’t committed a sin be the first to throw a stone at her. This is because it takes a man and a woman to commit adultery, the woman didn’t do that alone.”
