Women‟s inclusion in the traditional councils, that is, in the cabinets of traditional rulers, is likely to be the biggest and final move for gender equity and equality in rural South East Nigeria where Igbos are indigenes. Women‟s representation and participation at this level of decision making will effectively curb the scourge of men‟s discrimination against women. Some of today‟s Igbo women, the educated women of the 21st Century and of the information age, are becoming aware of their rights and whenever possible, do what will protect themselves or avoid any traditions, culture or situations that make them vulnerable to abuse.
