Men don’t like ‘overly successful’ women – Ini Edo

Nollywood actress, Ini Obong Edo has said some men see “overly successful” women as threats to their position as head of the home.

She said men prefer submissive women that they can “control.”

The thespian said, personally, she prefers to be a “queen,” stressing that she doesn’t like the idea of “lording over” a man.

Speaking in the latest episode of Toke Makinwa’s podcast, Edo said, “Some men are threatened by women’s strength. Because we can come off as if we are doing too much. First of all, you’re a woman, you’re beautiful, you’re here and there…

“Naturally, men want to see you [women] not so overly successful just so that they can pull you around, you can be the woman, cook and clean and do all the basic things that they’ve grown up to know is expected of women.

“So when you get too strong, it’s almost like you’re competing with their ego. But the truth is, like I always say, I like to be the queen. I’m not a woman who is looking to subdue any man or ride over any man.

“No matter how successful I get, I don’t think I would like to have a man that I am lording over. Then what is the beauty of it? I mean, the beauty of it is me walking beside my man and he giving me instructions and protecting me.”

She added that it is hard to find men who understand that successful women aren’t threats to their position as the head of the home.
