Abstract

There is no disputing the fact that the history of the world has been dominated by men, yet there is no historical evidence that at any point in time there have been more men than women. Yet this equality- average is lost when one follows the parity in terms of the volumes of scholarship available on almost any topic. Women are often time less represented or even ill-represented. This lopsided reality beggars the question of why is there such disparity in the first place, are there changes now? What could the past tell us about the realities of these facts?  Feminism has altered predominant perspectives in a wide range of areas within Western society, ranging from culture to law, Architecture to Philosophy. Though the issues in contention vary according to areas of specialisation, feminist ideologists and activists have continued to campaign for women’s legal rights: (Rights of Contract, Property Rights, and Voting Rights).

For women’s right to body integrity and autonomy, abortion and reproductive rights, including access to contraception and quality prenatal care. Also for the protection of women and girls from domestic violence, sexual harassment and rape- these rights also includes workplace rights, including maternity leave and equal pay, against misogyny, and against other forms of gender-specific discrimination against women. These are the cardinal concern of feminism all over the world; the inalienable premise of feminism. This research work focused on the Representation of women in Chimamanda  Adichie Half of a yellow sun and Isidore Okpewho’s The last duty. Therefore, the work brings to bear the societal disorder, conflict and psychological damages done to the Nigerian citizens during the three-year Nigeria Civil War of 1967 and present day Nigeria. The research work also seeks to portray the damages and social injustices experienced by innocent citizens as a result of war in the Nigerian society.
