Women ask for Sexual Harassment: Says Actress Opeyemi Aiyeola


Nollywood actress, Opeyemi Aiyeola-Owolomose, who been on an acting hiatus for some time now, says women are the ones who encourage men to molest them, in a recent interview she granted with The Nation, where she was asked about her life and upcoming projects.

When asked about her if she has ever been a victim of sexual harassment in the industry, she brushed it off saying she is not the type of person men will molest. She said: “I’m a woman, and a beautiful one at that. But I will never position myself at that corner where you will have the courage or momentum to even offer me such desire. I grew up as a very nurtured and disciplined woman and I’m never desperate at getting to the top.

“A man will only have the desire to sexually molest you if and when he sees you as just too loose and desperate. Once you don’t place yourself in such corners, I believe such would be convincingly avoided.”

She also said: “I wouldn’t totally agree that it’s true as much as I wouldn’t deny it. Because it’s not happened where I am doesn’t mean it does not exist. From day one it’s always the case when men get attracted to women and vice versa. When you claim men harasses women, are you saying women too don’t torment or grease the male even with their sexy moves? So, for me, it’s a matter of choice. It becomes an issue when the two of them don’t agree before anything is done.”

The actress also spoke on her married life and being a mother.
