In an update on a story we covered previously: Just hours after women protested across three states and the commercial capital of Lagos, on International Women’s Day, Nigeria’s lower house of parliament has rescinded its decision to drop three gender related bills, saying it will now reconsider the bills in a month when it reconvenes for another parliamentary session. Al Jazeera reports that one of the amendments was to grant citizenship to foreign-born husbands of Nigerian women, another would have given a woman the right to become indigenes of their husband’s state after five years of marriage, and the third provision was to assign 35 percent of legislative seats to women, as well as reserve 35 percent of political party leadership, for women.
