you think of Nigeria, the first thing that would probably come to mind
is strong family values, rich culture. Even after the years of British
influence, we still retained all the traditions that helped us stay
together during our fight for independence in 1960. Forty Five years
later, Nigeria still boasts of a multi colored variety of core-cultured
activities, Folktales, cultural dances and of course music. But
what major roles do women play in these activities? Women like, Funmilayo
Ransome-Kuti, Onyeka Onwenu have proved a great deal that women have
a respectable position in our society. But how open were we to women
who went over the margin, females who dared to take on challenging boundaries?
Roles influenced by the European world new to both our men and women.
