Nollywood actress, Empress Njamah, has said that women should help men control their anger in order to curb domestic violence.
The actress made this known in an interview with Broadway TV.
She also noted that women should share the blame for domestic violence, saying men alone are not always at fault.
“We are talking about this domestic violence, and it’s a serious thing,” she said. “A man beats a woman and it is called domestic violence, when a woman beats a man, what is it called?
“We are always about domestic violence and it is always focused about the women. There are men who are more beaten up mentally than the women who they beat physically; I am not saying it is advisable.
“Some women are headstrong, and they can actually traumatise their partner mentally that could actually make them run mad.
“Don’t beat a woman, it is not advisable, But women don’t beat the men up, help them control their anger instead.
“When a man hits a woman it is called domestic violence when a woman hits a man, it is called mental violence.
“I am not saying it is good, but sometimes you need to work together to help a man.
In 2012, Njamah was nominated for best-supporting actress at the Africa Movie Academy Awards but lost out to Terry Pheto.
