If women make up half the population of Nigeria, harnessing the potentials of this huge community, especially with regards to promoting entrepreneurship among them, promises numerous benefits at multiple levels including at the individual, family and national levels. As more women take the centre-stage in the global economy with many of them running successful enterprises, Nigerian women with education, management training, access to funding and the right environment can also excel. Dehexing women entrepreneurship in Nigeria will necessitate the expunction of existing obstacles and the conversion of possibilities to realities. Doing this will make women become greater contributors to the economic development of the country and engender the much anticipated social change. This paper asserts that women entrepreneurs in Nigeria can succeed if given the opportunity like their male counterparts.
