Self-Affirmative Discourse on the Depiction of Female Sexuality in Nollywood
The study was carried out to determine how female sexuality is depicted in Nollywood and explored reasons for the depiction, albeit stereotypical. This research was anchored on genderlect and muted group theories. The researchers adopted library research method. The researchers did a review of essays, research works and media commentaries of scholars, essayists and commentators on the depiction of female sexuality in Nollywood. Findings showed that majority of Nollywood films represent female sexuality in stereotypical and debatable forms. The findings also showed that the representation of women in Nollywood has not witnessed any radical departure from the traditional pre-conceived roles of women in societies. The researchers, therefore, recommended among others, that the orientation, skill and capacity of Nollywood producers be strengthened in projecting balanced views of female sexuality themes as this would contribute to reducing stereotypical perception of women.
