ActionAid is a global movement of people working together to further human rights and defeat poverty for all.

Women's rights

ActionAid’s work in Women’s Rights seeks to change unequal power relations between men and women in Nigeria with focus on increasing women’s participation in decision making processes.

It also supports the formulation of policies and review of existing laws to tackle harmful traditional practices, negative widowhood practices, Violence Against Women (VAW) and other unfavourable practices that deny women their right.

Various strategies are deployed including media engagements (through press releases, conferences, briefings and advocacies, publications and distribution of IEC materials), legislative advocacies and lobbying, awareness and sensitizations of all targeted and relevant stakeholders at the national, state and community levels.
