to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful.In modern India, women have held high offices including that of the President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Leader of the Opposition, Union Ministers, Chief Ministers and Governors.Over the past two decades there has been increasing interest in the links between gender, peace and security.Africa as a region has received its fair share of attention on this matter given the numerous conflicts it has endured.The reality of living and working in Nigeria can actually be a welcome surprise; the people are friendly, the weather is guaranteed and the food is delicious.Although it is not without its struggles, if expats take the relevant precautions, brush up on the dos and don’ts of the different areas and remember at all times that Nigeria is a developing country, then they will have a worthwhile and enriching experience.Most just seem to be wanting to just have sex with me, ride in my cuts and visit my home, and have me buy them something, in which I don't go for.
