This book analyses patterns of women's political participation and evaluates disparity between levels of women's participation in politics and representation in governance in Nigeria. It also examines the causes of women's underrepresentation in governance and decision-making as well as their implications for the country's socioeconomic development and describes strategies for increased women's representation in governance and decision-making in Nigeria. This study relies on political-culture and liberal-feminist theory and adopts a mixed-method research design involving quantitative and qualitative methods. It uses multistage sampling in selecting Nigeria's South-East, North-West and South-West geopolitical-zones and 1206 women of electoral age for the study survey conducted using structured questionnaire and in-depth interview.
