Chief Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti , MON ( / ˌfʊnmi
ˈlaɪjoʊ ˈrænsəm ˈkuːti/ ; 25 October 1900 – 13 April 1978) [1] , otherwise known as Funmilayo Anikulapo-Kuti , was a teacher, political campaigner, women's rights activist and
traditional aristocrat in Nigeria. She served with distinction as one of the most prominent leaders of her generation. She was also the first woman in the country to drive a car. Ransome-Kuti's political activism led to her being described as the doyen of female rights in Nigeria, as well as to her being regarded as "The Mother of Africa." Early on, she was a very powerful force advocating for the Nigerian woman's right to vote . She was described in 1947, by the West African Pilot , as the "Lioness of Lisabi" for her leadership of the women of the Egba people on a campaign against their arbitrary taxation. That struggle led to the abdication of the high king Oba Ademola II in 1949.
