The study focuses on the attainment of two main sustainable development goal (goal 8: Decent work and Economic growth and Goal 5: Gender Equality) alongside some other on a secondary scale. The ultimate empowerment of women is to step up and take charge of their own futures. The study employed the use of regression estimator, employing OLS. It assesses the extent to which female vulnerability in employment is influenced by agricultural sector employment of females, manufacturing sector employment of females and service sector employment of female. Expectedly, vulnerability of female employment vulnerability in the sectors examine indicates high level of vulnerability influenced by both the agricultural sector and the service sector. Therefore it is suggested that policies geared towards female empowerment in agriculture and services alongside other concerned sectors should be promoted to decrease the venerability of female employment in agricultural and service sector in Nigeria. This will result to increase in female empowerment and nation growth and development.
