The Legacy of Women Empowerment in Nigeriadocx

By Institute Of African Studies, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Summary

Gender discrimination has caused an untold harm to almost every facts of our existence as a nation, the seeming insurmountable problem, which poses as a very hard nut to crack, is what I intend to address in this paper. The problems caused by different gender bias and prejudice, otherwise called, gender chauvinism, are such that many people tend not to reason, before taking sides to their own gender, this, is found in the social, political, economic, religious and cultural spheres. The males feel that their birthright is to dominate the opposite sex, while the women feel that, for too long. They have been subordinated and subjugated by the hale folk, they therefore want their voice to be heard, hence, the women empowerment, women education, women liberation and even women domination as some people put it. This precarious situation came into being, since human beings seem to

have forgotten their natural and God given roles in the society. Postmodernism and the eradication or reduction of ignorance and illiteracy on the side of the women have played a part in bringing the female folk to the level which they are today, and also promises to advance them further. I shall in this paper examine the different positions of the two groups, the masculine and the feminine gender. And then conclude that no gender is insignificant and therefore none should be looked down upon since we claim to have a society that is egalitarian in nature.

Abstract

Gender discrimination has caused an untold harm to almost every facts of our existence as a nation, the seeming insurmountable problem, which poses as a very hard nut to crack, is what I intend to address in this paper. The problems caused by different gender bias and  prejudice, otherwise called, gender chauvinism, are such that many people tend not to reason, before taking sides to their own gender, this, is found in the social, political, economic, religious and cultural spheres. The males feel that their birthright is to dominate the opposite sex, while the women feel that, for too long. They have been subordinated and subjugated by the hale folk, they therefore want their voice to be heard, hence, the women empowerment, women education, women liberation and even women domination as some people put it. This precarious situation came into being, since human beings seem  to have forgotten their natural and God given roles in the society. Postmodernism and the eradication or reduction of ignorance and illiteracy on the side of the women have played a part in bringing the female folk to the level which they are today, and also promises to advance them further. I shall in this paper examine the different positions of the two groups, the masculine and the feminine gender.  And then conclude that no gender is insignificant and therefore none should be looked down upon since we claim to have a society that is egalitarian in nature.
