For over four decades, a particular week has been dedicated to creating global awareness for gender equality in all areas of life. Yet, while there’s been remarkable progress in reducing the gaping distance between gender disparity and gender equality, it’s still common for a woman to get deprived of an opportunity due to gender inequality.
According to the 2022 World Gender Gap report on the global gender gap index, Nigeria still records below 65% wealth equality. And despite moving from its 139th position in 2021 to 123rd in 2022, factors such as gender-based remuneration, financial literacy, and other sociocultural factors still affect women’s capacity to work or make wealth. On this special episode of Creative Gist, five creative women answer the question, have you been deprived of an opportunity because you’re a woman?

Close the Equality Gap
The 2022 Global Gender Gap Report also projected that achieving complete gender equality won’t be possible for another 132 years. However, we can all ensure that each day, we are promoting practical steps to close this gap and achieve women-inclusion in various sectors of society.
Are you a woman and reading this? Have you been deprived of an opportunity because you’re a woman? Are you a man who has seen a woman experience gender bias? Please share your experience below.
