Women are integral part of the Nations population. Nigeria has made a lot of efforts to empower her female citizens through education so that they may find it easy to assume their full roles in the sustainable scientific and technological development of the nation? Respite all these efforts being made, the women potentialities are still in obscurity because of challenges such as socio-economic cultural, religious, and other beliefs this paper therefore intends to discuss the concept of women empowerment, benefit and objectives of women empowerment, poverty eradication and sustainable development. The paper proffers the way forward for women empowerment such as A provision of free education and scholarship for women, enabling laws to make girl-child education compulsory, involve religious leaders and traditional rules to preach on the importance of women education etc, to mention just a few when this is done, the aims and objectives of women empowerment should be achieved.
