Reaching the Unreached Women through Open and Distance Education: Implications for the Playwright
Open and Distance Education is designed basically to provide accessible and affordable education to all especially those who were denied education earlier in life. Women and girls are mostly affected as evident in UNICEF’s declaration that in Africa, among children not attending school, there are twice as many girls as boys, and among illiterate adults, there are twice as many women as men. In most cultures in Nigeria, the girl-child is denied the opportunity for higher education because of early marriage or because the finances are lean so the male-child is given preference in educational considerations. The Open and Distance Learning provides opportunity for these women to acquire education but unfortunately, many of them are not aware of this golden opportunity. There is therefore a need to reach as many of them as possible through enlightenment and mobilization programmes. This study therefore proposes the use of drama as a tool for the sensitization and mobilization of women on the importance education and the availability of a convenient medium for it. // Paper ID: 116
