CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

The issue of women particupation in politics has become the focus of attention in recent times. The general belief is that the women group constitutes the oppressed and the exploited in the sootety. Women require greater attention, since they constitute a large percentage of the population and also contribute to the development of their various communities through active participation in politics.

Apart from these, all over the world today, there is an increasmg assertiveness and awakening in the area of politics. At the international level, the year 1975, was a period of ideas about the roles of women. In Nigeria it gathered momentum in the latter half of the 19805, lt is an accepted fact that the latter half of the twentieth century brought to women the realization that, current concepts of democracy and human rights had been successful in addressing their real issues which in their basic part were shared worldwide. That these issues had direct link to global political and economic developments, and that unless women of the world come together and make oncerted efforts towards meaningful debate and change their vorces would remain unheard and their concerns sidelined.

A searching interaction between national and regional women movements then contributed towards a dynamic international women movement. For the hrst time, women from this part of the world spoke out issues that were culturally consrdered a part of the private sphere. This growrng concern developed into a worldwrde movement as they attracted ore attention and interests over a series of International conferences held during the latter half of the century. From the 1985 adoption of the Nairobi fonNard looking strategies for the advancement of women, to the Beijing conference of 1995, there has been that spirit of total commitment to those.
