Feminism though more pronounced today had been on the lips of some people in the past. The truth is that a lot of misunderstandings have arisen, as the discussants expand the issue or central theme of feminism to suit their age and aspiration. Be it and end it, power remains the central issue in feminism. This paper attempts to examine the issue of power in gender discourse, look critically to see if really the female folk are powerless and the expected goal of equality of the sexes as campaigned by feminists and pro-feminists with the attendant problems raised by this aspiration and movement. This paper pointed out that the powerlessness of the female folk is a myth and calls for a rethinking of the gender issues both with regard its epistemological and methodological dimensions.
