 NAIJA WOMEN DECIDE

                           WHO  WE ARE

Naija Women Decide ( NWD) is a Movement that gives a FACE and a VOICE to women issues in Nigeria.

OUR MISSION

To foster a better integration of women to promote political, economic and social empowerment  of women in Nigeria

 WHY NAIJA WOMEN DECIDE ( NWD) ?

Politics in Nigeria is still largely a men's affair. Women are grossly under represented in governance and excluded from the electoral process. Only very few women hold key cabinet positions and representation of women in the Executive  and Legislative arms of Government is so marginal.
        
It's a known fact that women are an integral part of nation building and sustainable development at all levels. But after many years of democracy in Nigeria, women are still far from gaining significant visibility at any level of the political system.

Advancing women's political and economic empowerment in Nigeria requires determined efforts not only by women themselves, but also by Government and Stakeholders to make the economy and politics more inclusive and Gender responsive.

* NWD aims at bringing the issues affecting women to the fore and advocate for Government and Stakeholders to redouble efforts at providing opportunities for women in the economic and political sphere.

* NWD empowers women with information on their rights and opportunities to break the stereotypes, gain strength, become successful and change their world.  

* NWD actively mobilises women for active participation in every election in Nigeria .

* NWD campaigns for the full integration of women into the electoral process and advocate for Gender Mainstreaming of policy documents by all political parties in Nigeria.
