The thrust of the paper is that the needs of specific interest and attention in gender sensitivity in classroom teaching and learning should be safeguarded. There should be built Nigeria opportunities for gender equality in the Nigerian education system. This implies that learning resources do need to be guaranteed, especially for female learners. Without a national framework to ensure that gender sensitivity in classroom teaching and learning is reduced or completely eliminated, the issue of female equality in human endeavour would continue to be fragmented, despite the pronounced consensus about the importance of life-long education for female learners for active citizenship. Most important to note, however, is that the effectiveness and success of such framework would be a factor of relative bargaining power of the female folks, to ensure equal and full participation in the national development.
