Petition to ensure the signing of the Gender Equality bill into law in Nigeria

I am a mother of 2 little girls and I worry about them growing up in a society that threatens to limit their education, subject them to be discriminated against, exposed to domestic violence, denied opportunities for personal development, all because they had the seeming misfortune of being born female.

The bill helps create equal rights for women to stop being discriminated against in marriage, the workplace, inheritance, land ownership and freedom of movement.

Passing of this bill will help recognize the equality of women in spite of religious dogma, patriarchal culture, cultural taboos and traditions regarding the unfair treatment of women and girls.
