It also examines the causes of womens underrepresentation in governance and decision-making as well as their implications for the countrys socioeconomic development and describes strategies for increased womens 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 Nigerias 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.</span></span>
