Throughout Nigerian history, from the past to the present, women have played very important roles.In our museum, we are dedicating a section to capture the contributions of these great women to Nigerian, indeed African history and civilization. We will display their photographs and a brief history and achievements.The women we intend to exhibit at the museum include: Queen Amina, Princess Moremi Ajasoro, Madam Tinubu, Mrs. Margaret Ekpo, Queen Idia , Hajia Gambo Sawaba, Nwanyereuwa, Mrs. Funmilayo Ransome- Kuti and many others.Queen Amina was a Hausa warrior queen of the ancient city of Zaria (Zazzau) in Kaduna State. She ruled in the mid-sixteenth century. She was the first female monarch in a male dominated Hausa society.She was a skilled warrior that expanded her kingdom. She was said not have steady husband but took temporary husbands from the soldiers she defeated.Moremi Ajasoro was a member by marriage to the royal family of Ooni Oduduwa, the progenitor of the Yoruba race. It was at a time a neighbouring tribe called Igbo was always invading Ile-Ife dressed in raffia palms.The Igbos were enslaving the Yorubas. Moremi Ajasoro had to offer anything she had as sacrifice to the gods to discover the strength of her nations enemies.She was taken as a slave by the Igbo and, due to her beauty, she got married to their ruler as his queen.After a while there she had known every secret about her new husbands army, she then escaped to Ile-Ife and revealed this to Ooni Oduduwa after which they were able to subsequently defeat the Igbos in battle.
