Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to bring the Nigerian woman from the margins of international obscurity by acknowledging the contributions of reputable academics from an emerging market context on a subject that has pervaded the global podium in recent years - i.e. women in management.

Design/methodology/approach: The paper's approach is strictly qualitative in nature - a narrative analysis of a single book on women written by "a woman of status" - Dr (Mrs) Faseke, a graduate of the University of Ibadan and one time Head of the Department of History at the Lagos State University (Nigeria).

Findings: This paper acknowledges the "silent voices" of African women, drawing upon a publication that was encountered purely by chance - Modupe Faseke's The Nigerian Woman published by Agape Publications (Ibadan, Nigeria) in 2001.

Research limitations/implications: Although this paper reads very much like an extended book review, it does offer some critical theoretical and practical insight coming from a book published by a local and largely obscure publishing house - Agape Publishers based in the remote city of Ibadan in Southwestern Nigeria.

Originality/value: It is envisaged that after reading this paper, scholars of gender-themed studies may begin probing a bit deeper into the roots of the Nigerian woman and especially in situations where their voices have been muffled.
