At a time of rapid urbanisation, Nigeria, like countries around the world, is witnessing significant change in how we live, what we do for employment and leisure, and how we relate to one another. Gender roles and attitudes are changing, as opportunities abound for many women like never before. Yet urban living also presents new […]
In what ways do faith and diversity intersect to exert powerful forces on gender equality and social and economic outcomes, particularly for women and girls? How does this simultaneously raise challenges and provide opportunities for advancing women’s rights?
After the success of the ground-breaking research from the Voices 4 Change, Nigeria Landmark Research Report: ‘Being a Man in Nigeria’ and the Gender Hub e-learning course ‘Engaging men towards gender equality: why and how should we do it?’ this Collection brings together 34 key resources exploring why we should and how best to engage men towards gender equality.
Why is the experience of the world of paid work in Nigeria a gendered one? In the workplace are women treated differently to men? What changes are affecting women?
These resources and articles explore what women in Nigeria encounter when entering the labour market, how they negotiate challenges they face and strategies they take for making paid work work for them.
What are the main barriers faced by girls in getting an education? How are educators and policy-makers addressing these challenges?
What options to girls have in continuing vocational and further education? Is growing youth activism creating new forms of social movements?
What has changed for women and girls since the election of a new Nigerian President? Are new political opportunities available under Muhammadu Buhari? After the negotiation of international Sustainable Development Goals, are new ways of tackling gender equality available in the country?
The ways in which women are starting to engage in political conversations and activism is rapidly changing. The growth in access to online spaces, social media and an ability to create and produce art and literature easily are creating new entry points for activism and voice. We are seeing issues of gender equality framed in fresh, unexpected and exciting ways that help wider audiences think about issues anew.
The role that women can play in tackling sustainable development issues, both for the benefit of the country and for themselves is often under-recognised. These resources and articles demonstrate how women’s knowledge and agency can be brought to bear on issues as wide as conservation, natural resource management and the safeguarding of traditional knowledges. We also examine how structural inequalities reinforce the barriers women and girls face in building robust livelihoods that can survive environmental and economic shocks.
In this collection of 25 free-to-download summarised resources related to the themes of CSW59 Gender Hub not only explores issues of women’s rights, violence against women, and progress in the 20 years since the Beijing conference, but also documents the challenges women face in operating at CSW and within similar global spaces for organising and mobilising.
In the wake of elections across Nigeria the questions of ‘who’s in, who’s out, whose voices count?’ are high on the agenda. In this Collection we share 22 resources we have selected on the theme of women and political representation. This month’s collection includes reports and toolkits, both from within Nigeria and globally.
