Aba Women’s Protest was a period of unrest in colonial Nigeria over November 1929. The protests broke out when thousands of women in eastern #Nigeria travelled to the town of Oloko to protest against the Warrant Chiefs, whom they accused of restricting the role of women in the government. The protest encompassed women from six ethnic groups (Ibibio, Andoni, Ogoni, Efik, Ijaw, and Igbo).
In 1930 the colonial government abolished the system of warrant chieftains, and appointed women to the Native Court system. These reforms were built upon by the African women and have been seen as a prelude to the emergence of mass African nationalism
