Dreams for Nigeria

A documentary premieres.

The film highlights both the challenges and achievements of seven female members of Nigeria's House of Representatives, and the role they play in their country's political, social and economic development.

Recently, National Federation of Republican Women President Sue Lynch travelled to Nigeria to give grassroots training workshops.

NFRW President Sue Lynch travelled to Abuja, Nigeria with the Women's Democracy Network to help Nigerian women candidates facilitate the development of a manifesto.

The manifesto highlighted common ground on important issues in their country. The trip was part of an ongoing mission to work with Nigerian candidates to engage women in the civil and political life in their country.

Nigeria is preparing for an election. Let's hope women continue to make progress and more step forward to help Nigeria on its path to democratic government.
