Women in Nigerian History

The Rivers and Bayelsa States Experience

edited by Nkparom C. Ejituwu

This books represents a survey of the historical experience of women in the Niger Delta region, intending to fill the gap in information on Nigerian women. It arises from a conference on historiography and women's history, and focuses on the documentation of women's contribution to historical development, or rather lack thereof, which has resulted in the invisibility of women in historical narratives. It advocates gender as a tool of historical analysis; discusses the corrective role of Gender Studies, and to what extend expansion in this field is providing a solution. The volume includes a contribution by the renowned Nigerian feminist Professor of History at the University of Ibadan, Awe Bolanle.
