Wetin be rights of women on top culture, burial, native tradition mata or when time reach to share property?

To dey discriminate against woman na act wey dey unlawful for Nigeria.

Some practices still dey for some are for Nigeria against women especially for traditional and cultural practices ontop inheritance, burial rights, political empowerment, child marriage, marital and parental rights wey no supoose be.

On discriminatory practices wey relate to make woman inherit property or for burial rights, some women don dey fight for dem right as dem don dey go court. For ne case wey dem dey call Onwo v. Oko[2] a member of the Assemblies of God talk sey em discriminate against am the wey dem treat am make she mourn pesin wey don die for her community wey go against her belief Court of Appeal come give judgement wey favour the woman .

Also for the case of Augustine Nwafor Mojekwu v. Caroline Mgbafor Mojekwu[3], dem explain sey under Olu Ekpe custom for Anambra state, na only male child go inherent dem papa property. If male child wey suppose inherit the property come die where he no get male child, n aim papa brother go inherits dem papa property. If dem papa brother die, na the brother son go inhereit all dem papa property. The Court of Appeal come condem the practice.
