Sign The Petition: Stop Workplace Discrimination Against Women by oludashmi(f): 3:35pm On Nov 21, 2014
Workplace discrimination is a worrisome trend globally and in Nigeria. So therefore, this is a call for humanity’s sake to help protect the rights of our women. Mrs. Ifeoma J. Nwobodo writes from Enugu, Enugu State.

“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.”
Susan B. Anthony (Feb . 15, 1820 – Mar. 3, 1906)

According to a recent report published by United Kingdom’s The Independent newspaper, a fifth of the 25,000 women surveyed through questionnaires responded to having suffered from one form of discrimination or the other at their places of work.

While it is true that the survey took place in Europe, investigations have proven that women in this part of the world, including Nigeria, do not fare better than their UK counterparts.

In many instances, the Nigerian woman faces unnecessary pressure and discrimination at her workplace; not for any unprofessional reason or laxity on her job, but just because her creator, in His sovereignty, chose to make her feminine.

If a female employee is pretty and friendly, the odds are high that she would suffer sexual harassment from her senior male colleagues and not spared advances from her peers, if not even subordinates. Refusal to play ball, in most instances, results into her being subjected to threats, denial of entitlements, like promotion, training and, even sometimes, could face outright dismissal.
