The impact of Contemporary Globalisation Policies on Rural Women in Nigeria

The study examines the impact of contemporary globalisation policies on rural women in Nigeria: 1999-2012. The study seeks to highlight the experiences of rural women in Nigeria as they respond to the changes in the rural economy occasioned by globalisation policies, an area in which the research noted gaps in literatures. Descriptive qualitative method was adopted and the population of study are women living in the rural areas. The snowball purposive technique was used to select the respondents from three study states, Delta, Kwara and Kano, representing South, Middle belt and Northern regions of Nigeria, due to their economic profile. Data was collected through in-depth interview and Focus Group Disscussion. The interpretative phenomenological analysis was used for integrating data. The software package N-VIVO was used for thematic coding of interview data. The content validity in the research method and questions asked fully addressed the research questions, hence findings were valid.
