Fatima Suleiman on violence against women in Nigeria
The latest CREID Podcast highlights how violence against women and girls in northern Nigeria is endemic and is fuelled by conflict, poverty and a patriarchal society.
In this interview with Fatima Suleiman, Executive Director of the Islamic Counselling Initiative in Northern Nigeria describes gender-based violence against women and girls, which included rape, abductions, sex slavery, sex trafficking, domestic violence and forced involvement in terror activities, and how this increased during Covid-19.
She discusses her recent research which looks in particular at the situation of marginalised women from the Izala religious minority.
