Amina (also Aminatu; 1610) was a Hausa warrior queen of #zazzau (now Zaria), in what is now in the north-west region of Nigeria.
She is the subject of many legends, but is believed by historians to have been a real ruler. There are controversies among scholars as to the era of her reign; one scholar 👩🏫 placing her in the mid-15th century, and a second placing her reign in the mid to late 16th century.
More recent oral tradition has a series of lively stories about the #queen , and these have found their way into popular culture. Among them were: Amina was a #fierce warrior and loved fighting. As a child, her grandmother Marka, the favorite wife of her grandfather Sarkin Nohir, once caught her holding a dagger. Amina holding the dagger did not shock Marka, rather it was that Amina held it exactly as a warrior would. As an adult, she refused to marry for the fear of losing power. She helped (Zaria) become the center of trade and to gain more land. Her mother, Bakwa, died when Amina was 36 years old, leaving her to rule over Zaria.
The introduction of #kola nuts into cultivation in the area is attributed to Amina. The Queen Amina Statue at the National Arts Theatre in Lagos State honors her, and multiple educational institutions bear her name.
The warrior princess Amina Zarinde character who appears in "Elf Saga: Doomsday" (2014) by Joseph Robert Lewis is partly inspired by the Hausa queen.
Amina of Zaria (1533-1610?), commonly known as the warrior queen, expanded the territory of the Hausa people of north #africa to the largest borders in history. More than 400 years later, the legend of her persona became the model for a television series about a fictional warrior princess, called Xena.
The Worth Of The #africanwoman
Patriarchy has never been fair to women; it always decides what should factor, where, what to do and when. Nigerian women have, however, fought against patriarchy with their words and actions.
The feminist rise took a different dimension a couple of years ago when the likes of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie began advocating for equality. But, before ‘Feminist’ became a label, women were always at the forefront of civil, military and domestic movements to redefine the status quo.
In 1925, Nwanyewura of Oloko declared, “We will not pay tax till the world ends!” This statement gradually gave rise to a movement that had women all over the southeastern part of colonial Nigeria rise up and defend their rights against the oppressive payment of tax. A gathering of about 28-40 women led to the now famous Aba women riots. From Warri, Onitsha and Umuahia to Port Harcourt, Calabar, Opobo and Imo, the movement spread. Over 13 women, who took matters into their own hands and fought against injustice, were killed at the bank of the river leading from Opobo to Ikoti-Abasi–there is still no monument or statue in their remembrance. That became a turning point for women in power in colonial Nigeria.
On January 3, 1949, Madame Olufunmilayo Ransome Kuti broke glass ceilings, making headlines all over Africa when she led women to protest against taxation and the unnecessary suffering they had been subjected to. She organised a group of women and led the protest that caused the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Samuel Ladapo Ademola (1872-1962), to flee his throne. After that protest, Egba women were never looked down on again. She was an icon and defender of women’s rights. Due to her activism, she was thrown down a building when soldiers invaded her son’s house and set it on fire. She died weeks after from her injuries. No proper enquiry has been set up to investigate her death until today.
Later years saw women in active roles in Nigeria still not getting the fair treatment they deserved; these women remained relentless in a continuous fight against the system.
