Nigeria: feminism in Africa

Jangbalajugbu-Homeland Stories reports on a discussion at his university (University of Obafemi Awolow – Ife) on “Feminism & its role in contemporary Africa”….”the audience argued about Religion and Culture and both’s contribution to the subjection of the women folk. Jerome particularly stated that the Bible and the Quoran has been used a over the years as a weapon to that effect. Not surprisingly, the ladies cheered any speaker that talked about the indiscipline of men. They argued men are the cause of the problems women face.”
