History of Nigeria
History will never forget Nigerian women like Margaret Ekpo, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti and others who braved all odds, fought for the independence of the country.
Women play a big role in the social and political affairs of any country, but as far back as the colonial era, they have been facing marginalisation in Nigeria.
A lot of Nigerian women have broken stereotypes and continue to prove that they possess the quality, talents and characters traits required for national growth.
The numerous contributions and role of women in the struggle for Nigeria's independence are hidden under blanket statements and they are mentioned sparingly.
Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, Margaret Ekpo and other iconic female leaders pulled their weight in the fight for Nigeria's Independence from her colonial masters.
Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti and other women contributed greatly and led active political and socio-economic movements that culminated into Nigeria’s independence.
