#HowToFixNigeria: Dismantling Patriarchy

Wednesday, 31 August 2016 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

 

Date & Time: Wednesday, 31st August, 6:30-8PM

Venue:  The Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall

A special Africa Utopia edition of our popular #HowToFixNigeria panel series with Fatimah Kelleher, Dorcas Erskine and Elnathan John.    

Chaired by Funmi Iyanda – producer, broadcaster and CEO of Oya Media – this event discusses gender inequality in Nigeria, and looks at the ways in which women and men are fighting sexism and patriarchal oppression.  

Has the focus on gender in development projects made any progress towards dismantling the country’s patriarchy? What are the hopes, approaches and challenges that have defined the movement to empower Nigerian women? And what can we learn from Nigeria about the struggle for gender equality across the continent as a whole? 

This event is presented in partnership with Oya Media as part of the Africa Utopia festival.

This event is free and open to all - no prior registration is required
