  3. Encourage employers to hire inclusively
  4. Pass a gender equality law
  5. Get women access to capital
  6. Recognise informal workers
  7. Make travel safer for women
  8. End violence against women at home and work
  9. Teach boys to respect women
  10. Use emergencies as opportunities
  11. Look at wider inequality in Nigeria
