An excited Adetiba took to her Instagram page to share the positive news.
According to her: “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”
