Over   four  decade years ago  educated  Nigerian women  were  left out  in  most  of  the  national issues.   Most average  Nigeria  men felt  that the place  of  women   no  matter  the level of  her education  end in  kitchen.

However the  contribution  of  most educated women in  Nigeria in  the  recent time  have  cleared al doubt  in  the  saying that what  a  man  can do woman  can do  more  better.

Nigerian women are now coming forward  in this  21st  century to assert   and play significance  role in  the  countries    social   and economic  development   with their male  counterpart , they  have    left no  stone unturn in  carrying out  their  nature   duties either as a  civil  servant, commissioner,  minister, governor,  public  servant,  heads  of   non  governmental  organization  (NGO)etc. they now  organize  seminars  workshop,  campaign etc on women  empowerment  and  campaign on  feeding  methods and spacing  of  children and   number   of  children  which every  family   would  aim at  for  a  proper education   and  healthy up bringing.

Economically,   most idle  house  wife  in  the rural areas have be rehabilitated after  receding lectures on  the  roles  educated women in  developing economy and   women empowerment  in  our country. Some  embraced  waving  poultring , farming , hand  craft etc.  these  locally  made  craft during trade  fairs has  helped to project the ingenuity of  Nigerian women  as have   help to boast the economy of   the  country.

The  recent political interest     being  shown  by educated women   in our country  have also challenged the uneducated women  in  the  society  and the  masses at larger  to  understand that the  place  of   women  is   not only  in  the kitchen.  The past  immediate government recorded most of its  success in   most area which  was spearheaded by woman  the strong  and unbribable NAFDAC   Chairman Dr.  Dora Akuntelu she  took   it  upon herself to step drug abuse., Chief  Mrs. Ngozi Iwuala minister of finance recorded an unforgettable  impact  in that ministry   and  our country  at   large.  Also Mrs.  Oby Ezekwesili  the  minister of  education who  went a long way  in making Nigeria  educational  system, what  it  is today Dame Virge Etiaba   is  not  also   left  out  in  history   as the first woman  governor  in Nigeria  who turn Anambra state into   peaceful state  during   her (100) days in  office  as  governor  of Anambra state. To   mention but  a few.

Women  makes  psychological impact in  the society  with  the  talent they have as mother.   They knew the  best  way to approach the  youths children, they have in  many time organize themselves  in  groups to take care  of the  youths and educate  them on  the bad affect of  drugs  and other misconduct,  which they involve and  the impact of  their  contribution  is   been felt all  over the  country. Educated Nigeria Women


it is sometimes  said that women are   not  logical   that  their  thoughts  are  less  subject  to  control  by  the  rules  of  logic  and that  they  depend  upon institution and   emotion  more than  men.  It  is also  believed  that women are naturally   so constitute  that they cannot    be  otherwise.  This conception  had been used to rationalize  much of the  prejudice against higher profession  and top   business  and   industrial position. Are all these opinion about   women  facts    or are  the more  cultural  biases   having  no  factual base on  the  capabilities  of  woman.

The question on  their topic might  be asked who are these educated women? What  significant  roles  have  they  played or can play toward developing the country.? Though  women  are  later comers  in  the  race for education. Do  we   have women who have attained such educational   heights  as to  enable them play  the   significant  role  in  national development.
