In the famous words of Tian Wei, “any society that fails to harness the energy and creativity of its women is at a huge disadvantage in the modern world”.
Nigeria today is at a disadvantage due to the vast socioeconomic disparities that stretch within and beyond regional frontiers. These enormous diversities in living conditions and opportunities are of utmost concern. Similar to many developing countries around the world, the story of gender inequality is not new.
Nigerian women are amongst the most marginalized and experience barriers in every aspect of our society, with most having little or no access to education, resources and opportunities.
The significant gender gaps in education, economic empowerment and political participation in Nigeria are glaring and are cyclical. Discriminatory laws and practices, violence against women and gender stereotypes hinder greater progress towards gender equality.Job brief
