INTRODUCTION

1.0         Background of the Study

The issue of role and portrayal of women in media and videos has been an issue and constantly advocated for change by feminist film theorist. The stereotype of women by the kind of role they play and how they are portrayed tends to be negative and demeaning, this problem is global, from Hollywood, to Bollywood, Nollywood and Kannywood. The situation in Nollywood is characterized by gender disparity in the portrayal of women. From inception Nigeria movies have always portrayed the woman as sex objects, weaker vessels, consultant of witch doctors so as to lure men, etc. In some movies women are depicted as derailed women who are ambitious but are sided by romantic love, desperate to acquire mundane material things.

The phenomenon has become obvious in Kannywood where films are designed and created based on Islamic tenet but one can notice serious stereotypes of the women in the role they play and the way they are portrayed.
