Big Brother Naija 2018 housemate, Anto is celebrating International Women’s Day in a stylish and inspiring way.

She recreated 10 photos of famous female Nigerian icons which she posted on her Instagram.

According to Anto:

Even though women deserve to be celebrated every single day, International Women’s Day is a perfect time to remember the contributions women make to our society. The women I chose to recreate are Nigerian heroes, across many industries, proving that women excel in many fields.

I am using an all-female crew to execute this project to demonstrate one of the themes for International Women’s Day, #BalanceForBetter; to allow up and coming professionals showcase their talents and to prove that women are as skilled as men.

The photos include:

Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, revered political campaigner and women rights activist
