POWER AND DECISION-MAKING

Inequality between women and men tends to be severe and highly visible in power and decision-making arenas. Their voices are rarely heard, for example, in decisions on managing an economy, or sharing benefits and costs. In most societies around the world, women hold only a minority of decision-making positions in public and private institutions. This is no different in Nigeria.
