Africa’s global style and culture magazine, Arise, has named Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji as one of the top 100 Dynamic Women alongside Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Deola Sagoe and others. The magazine listed in its current edition, 100 dynamic women chosen from all over the world who have influenced the society in their chosen profession. With the increased calls for gender equality, women are gradually becoming a force to reckon with in every facet of life. The female, which used to be referred to as the weaker sex, is shedding off herself from that and going with the slogan 'what a man can do, a woman can do better'.
