Nigeria is a society in transition subjected to the hardest test of growth and development. The paper attempts to examine the prospects of women education as a tool for sustainable development. In many countries, it has been recognized that the development process does not promote gender equity in the distribution of the benefits of economic growth. Indeed, there is a growing awareness of the existence of differential access that the distribution of the benefits of economic growth is skewed in favor of the men fork. Female labor is regarded as supplementary to that of male and consequently, the benefits of development programs are only expected to filter down to women through their men fork. Furthermore, socio cultural restrictions often inhibit women active participation in the development process. Women have therefore, become a major focus of research and policy throughout the world .The paper discusses what women education, national unity and integration entailed , particularly their roles as the transformers or engines that propel sustainable development in Nigeria. A questionnaire technique was used to collect relevant data. Due to inferential nature of the study, background information obtained from the respondents were interpreted and analyzed using t test. However, the presentation and discussion of results were carried out around the research questions hypotheses which have guided the analysis. The paper began with introduction, objective of the study, conceptual and theoretical frame work related to the study. And followed with conclusions and some recommendations on how best to overhaul the present educational system with a view to providing final approach to the persistent problems of women education globally.
