FROM: THE DIGNITY OF A FRENCH TEACHER: CELEBRATING PROF. JULIE AGBASIERE

Agriculture was the predominant occupation of women in the Nigerian society. Most women engaged in the production of food crops. Not only were women responsible for the bulk of food produced, they were also responsible for most food crop distribution from farming centers to the urban areas all over the country. Motherhood is a very important role, as well as the ultimate source of the physical manpower. Women are the only source producing manpower. In the words of late Mrs. Maryam Babangida, as quoted by Elo Amucheazi; “Women are a factor in life which could no longer be ignored as they represent not only half of the world’s wisdom, strength, labour force and intelligence but also half of its demands” (Ijere,116). This paper takes a look at the contribution of women to pottery in Nigeria, with special reference to Dr. Ladi Kwali, a Nigerian female potter.
