Abstract:After discussing the position of women in the labour force in Nigeria, the author looks at the development of the Nigeria Labour Congress Women's Wing (NLCWW), first set up in Lagos in 1983, the condition of women in the workplace and in society as a basis for understanding the visions of the NLCWW, and the strategies adopted or envisaged by the NLCWW in order to fight against sexual harassment and discrimination. The NLCWW incorporates both class and gender issues and to that extent it is more radical than the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the trade unions. However, it depends on the NLC for its survival and this lack of autonomy and independence is a great handicap in the development of a well-organized body. Ref., sum. in French.
