Research in the north indicated that many women opposed the practice, and tried to keep bearing children to stave off a second wife's entry naija the household.
Although women's status would undoubtedly rise, for the foreseeable future Nigerian women lacked the opportunities of men. In the north, practices that were introduced in terms of women's position in society have been mainly as a result of colonialism and the introduction of salafism and wahhabism thought into the traditionally sufistregion. This process has meant, generally, less formal education; naija teenage marriages, especially in rural areas; and confinement to the household, which was often polygynousexcept for visits to family, ceremonies, and the workplace, if woman were available and woman by a girl's family or husband.

Urban women sold cooked foods, usually by sending young girls out onto the streets or operating small stands. Research indicated that this practice was one of the main reasons city women gave for opposing schooling for their daughters. Even in elite houses with educated wives, women's presence at social gatherings was either nonexistent or very restricted.

In addition, young ladies deciding on courses and professions to choose from now have the full autonomy to do that in some households naija in the southern part of the brigette bardot naked. However, the north still lags behind in these apparent changes due to cultural laws. In the south, women traditionally had economically important positions in interregional trade and the markets, worked on farms as major labor sources, and had influential positions in traditional systems of local organization.
The south, like the north, had been polygynous; in it still was for many households, including those professing Christianity. Women in the south, had received Western-style education since the nineteenth century, so they occupied positions woman the professions and to some extent in politics.
