Is smartness determined by gender or are men automatically smarter than women? See how Nigerians feel about this.
This is why ‘The 50/50’ campaign was developed to challenge the stereotypes associated with men and women in Nigeria.
Women in Nigeria are often discriminated against based on their gender alone. Backed by ambiguous interpretations of religious books and cultural norms, many Nigerians find it easy to oppress women.
Just yesterday, the Nigerian lawmakers voted against a bill that sought to grant women equal rights and legal protection from all forms of discrimination.
The senators who rejected the bill said it is in conflict with religious and traditional beliefs.
On this episode, Pulse strivia team visited Kano, Kaduna, Enugu and Lagos, asking different Nigerians the same question: “Women or men, who is smarter?”
As you can guess, there were different funny responses from both men and women alike. Some responses were hilarious.
One person believes women can never be smart because they go through menstruation every month while another believes only married women, not hardworking ones, are smart.
