Abstract:Studies show that in the social structure of Nigeria, women are discriminated against and occupy a lower social stratum than me. Disability confers lower social status to both men and women in Nigeria. This study was undertaken to evaluate whether there is still discrimination against women among this lower group of people. A survey was conducted to evaluate the attitudes of three groups of men and women from the three major ethnic groups in Nigeria toward men and women in this lower stratum. A series of multiple regression tests was conducted. Test results of ethnicity on attitudes toward men with disabilities were not significant. However, test results about the role of ethnicity on attitudes toward women with disabilities were significant, but no coefficient factor was significant. Further tests with cultural beliefs about disabilities to determine their effect on attitudes about people with disabilities were not significant. Multiple-regression tests to determine the effects of cultural beliefs on attitudes toward men with disabilities were also not significant, but cultural beliefs, as a coefficient factor, were significant. Finally, a test to determine the effect of cultural beliefs about disabilities on attitudes toward women with disabilities was significant, and two coefficient factors—cultural beliefs about disabilities and ethnicity—were significant. The test was repeated with ethnicity excluded, and cultural beliefs were again significant. It was concluded that cultural beliefs were the most important predictors of attitudes.
