CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF WOMEN CONDITIONS IN NIGERIA

CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF WOMEN CONDITIONS IN NIGERIA

Published by Trafford
We examine whether Nigerian women have equal rights with men. To rectify these conditions such as discrimination based on gender, violence, and other maltreatments, we apply qualitative methodology using content analysis, personal knowledge, and observations. We found that in Nigeria, it is traditional customs and deep-rooted cultural mores, and Islamic religious beliefs tend to compete with customary law and the statutory laws inherited from England. The former has taken precedence and profoundly overshadowed the latter. However, there is a high incidence of violence, discrimination, and other maltreatments against women.
