On Wednesday (Mar. 8), thousands of Nigerian women celebrated International Women’s Day in Lagos.

Some gathered at the city’s Mobolaji Johnson Stadium, with many donning the purple attire that is traditionally worn on International Women’s Day and represents justice and dignity.

“In my opinion, IWD [Editor’s note: International Women’s Day] makes us feel celebrated as women, being recognized, and today’s, this year’s IWD is basically talking about having equal gender,” Idowu Bimpe said.

So, the farmer said, “I hope men won’t feel threatened because they are raising us women so we can actually compete in every walk of life.

It’s important for us to celebrate ourselves, not just in Nigeria but all over the world, said another woman, Kemi Omotosho. Women are powerful, self-assured individuals who can change systems for the benefit of the family.

“So, it’s good […] to make us come together as a group to encourage ourselves, to appreciate ourselves and then see a way of moving this nation forward and the world at large,” the entrepreneur said.

International Women’s Day was first recognized by the UN in 1977, but it has its origins in early 20th-century labor movements.
