Women and Democratic Stability in Rivers State, Nigeria



Women for long have suffered from various forms of discrimination, inequality, exclusion and violence. But, in recent times empowering women is increasingly being recognized as a pre-condition for and as an indicator of the level of success in the attainment of sustainable development. Therefore, because of their role in building a peaceful and co-ordinated family, they have a lot of offer in democratic stability in Nigeria and Rivers State in particular. Our project is that there is a relationship between the role of women as home builders and democratic stability. Two hypotheses were developed and analyzed using 2 test of mean method. Questionnaire interview and observational methods were used to gather our primary data. Data was collected from sample population of 1000 respondents covering ten Local Government Area from upland and riverine of Rivers State. 800 copies were properly filled and returned. Chiefs elders, women, men and youths were not left out in the distribution of our questionnaire. It is obvious that women engineers economic, social and political development hence the need for democratic stability. Based on the above, it was recommended that women should be given good education as civic right, to enable them educate their children.
