Undressing For Redress: The Significance Of Nigerian Women’s Naked Protests

This meeting helps look into the role of the African woman in African societies/polities.

‘Historically, in western and non-western worlds, women have used their bodies to protest unacceptable treatment by those in power. In Africa, the nakedness of women, especially mothers and grandmothers, is a historical and symbolic “shaming” tactic. Women’s enacting nakedness on their own terms disrupts dominant notions that depict their bodies as passive, powerless, or as sexual objects for sale’.
