Netflix women of honor
As the world would celebrates international womens day, Nigerian Movie Filmmaker, Kemi Adetiba has been named one of the 55 women in the world who has via their works contributed to earning a revered place for women in the world through entertainment.
The King of Boys director who was named in a collaboration between Netflix and United Nation women, represent the core reason for the launching of “Because she watched”.
“Because she watched” is a special Netflix collection of series, documentaries and films to re-position women in the society as the celebration of the international women’s day is on.
Having big names in the production crew, the UN Women Deputy Executive Director, Anita Bhati noted:
“This collaboration is about taking on the challenge of telling women’s stories and showing women in all their diversity.
“It’s about making visible the invisible, and proving that only by fully representing and including women on screen, behind the camera and in our narratives overall, society will truly flourish,”
With the theme of this year’s celebration, “I am Generation Equality:Realizing women’s right” , according to the UN, the collected series is to celebrate women who championed the stories of works that inspires women across the world.
Of Which, on the list of these women celebrated is our very own Kemi Adetiba, the lordress of KING OF BOYS.
Is that not beautiful?
Celebrating herself, Kemi Adetiba took to instagram to express her joy, talking about the good course of celebrating the power of women.
“I am honored to be one of the women from around the world (and one of the only two women from Africa 😉) to curate a collection of titles on Netflix for their 158 million members globally called “Because She Watched”, celebrating the power of women’s stories and the official IWD 2020 theme of Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights launching on Feb. 27.
@netflix tasked me to choose a couple films (and write on my reason of choice) that inspire HER in some way, sparking important conversations or cultural change related to gender equality, one that features a groundbreaking role not previously portrayed on-screen before or features female talent behind the camera.
Want to know the film(s) I chose? Please take some time to visit the link… And I hope you enjoy it”.
Obviously our entertainers all around, have already carved a respect-full place for themselves in the global scenes, hence, we have all reason to say that we are almost on a par with the Hollywoods and the host of names in the world.
This is a huge win for all of us as much as it is for Kemi Adetiba.
While we heartily congratulates the Movie lordress, type in your words to her in the comment section.
And for the record, we say happy international women’s day to you in advance.
