The Nigerian Women’s Trust Fund (NWTF) will join a mass movement of women to march against issues that affects the Nigerian women. The “Women for Women” match aims to gather women and men activists to promote and amplify women’s rights.
Standing together in solidarity, this march will provide another opportunity to call our political class to account for their impacts and actions aimed at addressing and closing the gender gaps. The march will also bring to the front burner the multiple issues affecting Nigerian women across diverse background and demand for immediate action by the government to commit conscious efforts towards the eradication of all forms of gender discriminations.
This movement is also expected to be channeled into tangible strategies and concrete advocacies geared to place Nigerian women as partners and not in the background of nation building while effective gender policies are enforced towards the nation’s holistic development.
The march is expected to begin at Eagles Square, Abuja from 9 am on May 10, 2018.
