Women play diverse roles in the society. These roles include biological, social and political functions. However, in carrying out their duties, women encounter different and sometimes, needless difficulties. It is an attempt to tackle these difficulties in different parts of the world and different spheres of life that gave rise to the current spate of feminism. The term tends to be used for the women’s rights movement. This paper therefore deals specifically with development of the ideas behind that movement and their influence and impact. It examined feminism in Nigeria and constraints to women development. It proffers recommendations as a solution to these problems. Among others is that the present ministry of women affairs and social development should be change into ministry for gender and minority development, in which the minister may not necessarily be in women.
