Empowering Women for Sustainable Development through Entrepreneurship Education

Catherine Uchenna Nnamonu


The central contention of this paper is that women are the ones who suffer most from the pervasive effects of poverty in present Nigerian society. One can point to some of the ways in which poverty and structural violence affect the health, and well-being of women in terms of maternal mortality, domestic violence, susceptibility to diseases like HIV/AIDS and STD, sexual violence, abuse and exploitation etc. This situation has also given rise to child trafficking and prostitution as women seek for various illegitimate means of survival. It is against this background that this paper focuses on researching on ways and means of empowering women for sustainable development through entrepreneurship education. This paper argues that entrepreneurship education will equip women with skills and ideas to start up small scale business that would make them self-reliant and also contribute to sustainable development in Nigeria.
