British Council Gender In Nigeria Report


British Council report on gender inequality in Nigeria. The inequality is twofold: between men and women, and again there is a separate disparity between women in the north and those in the south.

The report considers areas like income, education, health, political participation and violence against women. Only 15% of Nigerian women have their own bank accounts. Over half of women in the north are married by the age of 16.
