NIGERIA: Female lawyers organize rally for divorce and domestic violence issues affecting women

nigerian women

The International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), Kwara state branch along with the National Council of Women Society (NCW), recently held a road show in Ilorin, the state capital. In the spirit of stemming the tide of violence against women, forced and early marriages. In a communiqué issued at the end of the show, FIDA frowned at indecent dressing among women, saying women’s predicament is self-induced. Emphasis added.

Huh? I am not clear on what the purpose and goal of these people is as far as helping divorced women and women who suffer in domestic violence situations, when they make statements like that in their issued communiques about “women’s dressing” and the self inducement of their predicament. It all sounds very idiotic to me.  But you can judge for yourself if you wish. Go here: ngonewsafrica.org/2009/12/nigeria-women-female-lawyers-rally.html
