Renowned Nollywood thespian, Stella Damasus, wants African mothers to desist from advising their daughters to put up with domestic violence simply because they passed through similar experience in their marriage.
Damasus made the call in a statement she made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Friday.
The actress, who is adding her voice to the campaign against domestic violence, said lots of lives had been lost because of mindless violence perpetrated by some husbands against their wives.
She added that there was the need to put an end to recurring domestic violence.
Damasus stressed that no man has the right to hit a woman, either a wife or girlfriend, no matter the situation.
She said: “Let’s work together to put an end to domestic violence. We have lost enough people to this barbaric act.
“It is not right. African mothers, please stop telling your daughters that because it happened to you, it’s okay for it to happen to them.
“No man has the right to hit any woman even if it is his wife or girlfriend.”
