The women in the All Progressive Congress (APC) have now declared the need to be seen as equals to the men in the party. (Kamala Harries have finally whispered to them). They demanded for equality in the party constitution, structure and in participation.
While addressing newsmen at the National Secretariat, Abuja, Dame Pauline Tallen, the Minister of Women Affairs, made this demands on behalf of female members of the party.
This is a strong feminist movement and I believe that they should be heard. The involvement of women in politics should be as much as that of men, perhaps real and positive change will begin to show forth.
What is your reaction to this.
Do you believe that women will do well or even better if given the equal positions and opportunities as men are accorded in politics?
Given the history of patriarchy in Nigeria, is this possible?
