CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Background of the Study

In the past three decades, the debate on the role of women in societies and their participation in economic activity has sparked a lot of controversies. There are those, who passionately argue that women are by nature nurturers and they should, therefore, maintain the domestic roles of childbearing and homemaking. It is there that their greatest pleasure and achievements should lie (Deckard,

1983). Borne of this conversation is the modern-day progressive advocacy by Civil Societies (CSOs), Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and Governments for the inclusion of women, as well as ensuring equality of both sexes, in all aspects of socio-economic life.

It is suggested that in pre-colonial times, gender relations ensured that men and women had different but equal roles, and worked in tandem to realise the economic empowerment and independence of both sexes. According to scholars of this school of thought, a major reason that led to the confusion of the significance of women in the economic sphere is the prejudice about the African woman by the expatriates, coupled with our significant lack of adequate records to refute this notion. European travellers projected onto the African society their belief of relegating women to the ‘delicate’ sphere or domestic life, while their men built nations and empires (Aidoo, 1985).
