Abstract

Women are said to be builders of homes, they are the rockers of cradle(s), and they enrich a nation with their reproduction prowess. Women are also said to be lifters of their men’s spirit especially with their companionship, It is in this light that this paper attempts an understanding of the ways in which gender and its attendant problems impede on the social standing and general development of the woman in society. It pays particular attention to the Afemai women in Estakor of Edo state and interrogates the culture of the people of this area within the confines of gender and power relations Overall, the paper will address the gender question from the socio-cultural perspective. The paper uses observation through indirect participation and interview to gather information used in this research and some of the findings are embedded in the paper.
