: 10.9790/0837-2310013541     logo

Abstract: Agriculture in Nigeria has remained the largest non-oil contributor to the national economy. However, the sector has suffered setbacks, one of which is the disparity in gender opportunity. This paper attempts a gender analysis, the challenges of food security and its implications for food security in Nigeria. The data are obtained mainly from secondary sources and evaluated with content analysis. The Longwe's Women's Empowerment Framework (1990) was used to explain the need for women to access to social and economic opportunity so as to enhance their productive capacity. Findings from extant literature showed that lack of adequate opportunity and empowerment affects agricultural production among rural women in Nigeria. The findings provided the basis for suggestions and improvement..
