Sammie Bryant's curator insight, January 2, 11:58 PM

this article applies to gender equality as well as religion. the piece talks about a Nigerian woman facing a murder trial over a forced marriage. since gender equality is at its lowest in southeast Asia, the middle east, and sub-Saharan Africa, it makes sense that this event occurred in Nigeria. in these countries, women are usually treated as second class citizens- where there most important decisions are made by the male figures in their lives. this applies to our 5th unit of APHUG, the one concerning gender.
