Purple Gist: Whose responsibility is it to avoid getting pregnant?

In a recent research report titled Being a Man in Nigeria, 60% of men said that they believed that it is a woman’s responsibility to avoid getting pregnant. This week, we want to put a Purple lens on this statement and discuss what it really means to be a 50/50 man.

In many Nollywood movies, we have watched women get accused of getting pregnant in a bid to tie down the man and get him to marry her. This ideology has sipped into society with many believing that it is indeed the responsibility of the woman to not get pregnant.

This week, Purple is asking why can’t men be held responsible too after all, it takes two to tango and make a baby!

Whose responsibility is it to avoid getting pregnant? Let us know on this week’s Purple Gist!
