Gender Inequality in Nigeria's Economy. The Oppression, Exclusion and Subjugation of Nigerian Women


Research Paper (postgraduate), 2023

13 Pages


Abstract or Introduction

This study explores the indicators that outline the oppression, exclusion and subjugation of Nigerian women in the contemporary world. The study analyses the impacts such as the Nigerian laws, the notion that Nigeria retains a patriarchal social structure, Nigerian politics, and of course most importantly, Nigeria’s economy. The study employs the theoretical framework of the "Black Feminist Theory", which in a nutshell can be described as a sociopolitical and economic perspective that acknowledges the perpetuation of the dominance of Patriarchy in the 21st Century; it is a critical theory, advocating for the dismantling of gender bias categorizations and dichotomies that attribute females with inferior qualities as opposed to their male counterparts. This theory is suitable for the study as it provides a lens with which to analyse and frame the research within a specific boundary that can be managed with relevant discourse; the theoretical framework assists the study with a useful vocabulary to unpack the phenomenon it wishes to investigate.

The study is an extended literature review, sourcing information from online journal articles, library, online articles from organizations, archives, and newsletters; therefore the article is heavily reliant on secondary accessible data. The study employs a qualitative research design, as it deals with unpacking concepts, exploring experiences of individuals in a social environment and dealing with data that is subject to interpretation.
