Quotes: 15% for Women; 85% for Men

This is not a scientific study. Yes, I committed to count the number of men and women quoted by Premium Times and Guardian (the two Nigerian newspapers I read daily) over three months. The result is unfortunate: women were quoted less than 15% while men dominated 85%.  We have a long way to travel on gender parity in Nigeria.

These are really shocking numbers. We are living in the twenty-first century and there is so much discrimination between the two genders. Stats like this give rise to the feminism power. I hope that the dynamics will change in the near future and we all need to play our part.

Certainly, everyone hopes so.
