Women constitute the majority of humanity, being about 56% of the total of the 6 billion on earth. The problem of unequal access to social benefits by women received global attention when the United Nations declared the period 1975-1985 as the decade for women. There was also a special conference on women held in Beijing, China in 1995 to access improvement on the life of women. A consciousness has been developing nationally that unless something is done to politically empower women, as an interest group, and to combat poverty amongst them by creating incomes and wealth, the entire development of the country stands mortgaged. Women have gone through notable development phases in human history. Poverty has a woman face since 70% of people in poverty are women .
