This study evaluates the women discrimination in the real estate industry in Lagos State, Nigeria. A total of seventyeight (78) Estate Surveying and Valuation firms were randomly selected in the study area, Forty-five (45) questionnaires were retrieved and analysed using descriptive statistics. The study found that there were more male Estate Surveyors and Valuers than female in the study area. Most of the female estate surveyors and valuers are attached to property management departments of their firms and the challenges they encounter range from difficulty in balancing work and the home front to the fact that women are seen as not being capable of practicing the profession amongst others. The study recommended that the female Estate Surveyors and Valuers should be proactive and strive to be at par or even better than their male colleagues
