93% Of Ondo [yoruba] Women Contribute To Their Household [fact] by Nobody: 7:53pm On Nov 09, 2010
Girls’ education is apparently highly valued among the Yoruba: the gender gap in school enrolment is
lowest in Ondo.
When husbands do not agree with a wife’s school choice for a child,
the mother will decide on the school and pay the school fee, in addition to the daily
expenditures for schooling, as Gammage found for the Yoruba but not for the other
ethnic groups. Interestingly, a much higher share of women in Ondo contributed to
household expenditures compared to the other states.

The rate of urban women
contributing to the household budget was highest for the Yoruba (93%), compared to
the other groups (76% and 67% respectively).
However, the study also revealed that
Yoruba women have the lowest decision making power – based on education, income
and fertility control – in the household compared to the other ethnic groups. Yoruba
women’s decision-making power index, running from 0 to 1, was 0.73, compared to
0.83 for Ibo and 0.89 for Hausa and Fulani women. So, a contradictory picture
emerges for Yoruba women in Gammage’s survey: they are better educated and
contribute more often to household expenditures compared to other ethnic groups,
but at the same time their decision making power in the household is lower. Our case
study hopes to provide some insights into this paradox.

This survey was done in 2007, so Yoruba women do have higher decision making in their marriage nowadays wink

Most of the Nigerian women I know make their household decisions, with husband's support wink wink
