Fatima Suleiman on violence against women in Nigeria

Season 1, Ep. 3

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.
