In this series, we will be sharing and celebrating stories of women’s activism in Nigeria. The women in this podcast were present at the United Nations 4th World Conference on Women popularly tagged ‘Beijing 1995’. Their extensive and impactful experience and commitment to the empowerment of women is why we continue to celebrate them. UN Women and WISCAR believe in the power of a shared story in leading the next generation to aspire, grow, and contribute to nation-building. We hope you will be inspired as you listen.
