RESEARCH PROJECT TOPIC ON WOMEN EMPOWERMENT AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (A STUDY OF BWARI LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA, F.C.T, NIGERIA)


ABSTRACT

Women empowerment is all encompassing, so this work will want to narrow it to the subject of women development and the impact of skill acquisition and economic empowerment. This topic has generated so much controversy in Nigeria, and the debate centers on appropriate type of development and whether they would help stimulate women toward their development. There is much ambivalence within every society as to the proper place of women in all the vital spheres of life. However, there seems to be a consensus that the future of women development is greatly enhanced with these two variables mentioned above. This study therefore examines the role of skill acquisition and economic empowerment on women development and how women have contributed in the development of their community. This will be done by defining each of the concepts involved, showing their specific relation and reaching a conclusion on the topic.
