The Role Played By Women in Community Development in Kaduna South Local Government Area of Kaduna State

                                                                                                       Abstract

Women’s roles in every society were viewed as important to consider in the development process, as policies and programs implemented often had adverse effects on women. Development strategies came under criticism from women practitioners for their failure to recognize the contribution women make to the economy in our society. It was pointed out that, in all societies, men and women have different responsibilities for the tasks necessary for the survival and development of the community. However, within the existing division of labour, responsibility for the maintenance of human resources fell largely on women’s shoulders. In view of this background, this study has empirically examined the role played by women in community development in Kaduna South Local Government Area of Kaduna State. To address the problem of study, four research objectives were examined and modernization feminist theory of development was used in this study. The researcher adopted a survey research design. A total of one hundred and sixty four (164) respondents comprised the target of the study. Questionnaire was the instrument used for data collection
