Discourses on women affairs are daily becoming wider in scope and veering into every area of human endeavour, hence, the relevance of feminism in the body politic of a nation. In addition, democracy has become the most popular form of government worldwide with America taking the lead. For instance, America had come to solid terms about her form of government since the declaration of independence in the year 1776 (Pole, 1993:212). Since then, "the term democratic Government has become almost synonymous with the American governance and electoral processes" (Adegboye, '1997:498). Nigeria only gained her independence in 1960. She has since 'Convulsed' with spates of Civilian and Military governments, the latter being the most frequent and longest dispensation she ever had. Only recently, precisely May 29, 1999 she commenced the 4th Republic since independence.
