This research by Funmi Para-Mallam, Philip Hayab John, Chikas Danfulani Tsilpi, Katung John Kwasau and Christine Samuel aims to comprehend the interconnecting threats and vulnerabilities facing underprivileged women from marginalised religious groups in Nigeria from the angle of gender discrimination from their neighbouring communities as well as their host societies. It also extends to discrimination shown to people on the basis of their religious background as well as socioeconomic biases endured by poor women from marginalised religious groups.
The research also aims to exhume and illuminate the societal experiences of women as an undermined group compared to men of the same faith, including how discrimination from the wider society affects both groups. It looks at cultural and socioeconomic vulnerability of these women and aims to learn from their experiential knowledge by listening to their stories first hand.
