Actress and singer Stella Damasus, in a new episode of her Soldier in Red Lipstick Vlog says she does not agree with the “Think like a man” statement to women.
“I don’t have to think like a man,” she says. “I want to think like me”.
Stella adds that she’ll not raise her daughters to think like men.
She says telling a woman to think like a man is tantamount to telling a woman that for her to be successful she has to think like a man.
“Why would you say to me, a fully grown woman, that for me to be successful, I have to think like a man?”
She said one can’t claim to advocate for gender equality, and in the same breath say women should think like men.
She encourages women to think for themselves and not like any other gender or individual, adding that a woman has all it takes and all she needs to be successful.
“I’m not comparing myself with any gender, neither am I competing,” she says.
