Culturally, the values held by the womenfolk within Nigerian traditional social system were symbolically tied to their ascribed social roles. Such roles, as obtainable in larger segments of sub-Sahara African societies, often include procreating, household chores - cooking, cleaning, caring for others, etc.
Aside from these, it was commonly believed that women could hardly be relevant elsewhere. However, with the advent of globalization, functions have become unprecedently differentiated. New challenges have been presented to humanity. Skills and capabilities have come to replace cogent nefarious considerations, which had limited women's involvement in the process of globalization on contemporary Nigerian women's existence.
While the methods of systemic observation, content and secondary analyses were employed as the study's modes of investigation, Spencer's development hypothesis was functionally adopted as the study's theoretical platform. In all, vagaries of the globalizing phenomenon have been observed as the basic impetus for the prevailing enhanced socio-economic status of Nigerian Women.
