Who we are

Women as a group in Nigeria, suffer a series of deprivation,discrimination and degrading practices in their private and public life. They are victims and survivors of different forms and expressions of injustices and are grossly underrepresented in decision making structures. Their capacity to access and own primary resources is limited by unequal opportunities in education, employment and violence leading to poor self-esteem.
