Virtually, every government policy in world claim to support women participation in labour unionism. Every regime in the last two decade switches their language if not strategies to the new empowerment mantra. Yet excellent policies and intentions have not translated into reality or action to make the changes required if women are to participate effectively to the nation development. The national gender policy is yet to bear fruits, while implementing the convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women (the women Bill) has stall. But gender in equality has become a universal phenomenon more especially in third world nations; gender inequality at the political level has become much more rampant in this present political dispensation which has affected the political development of the third world nations. In this world today gender inequality has affected the world socially, economically, politically and even intellectually. This paper will critically examine how gender inequality has affected the world in many ways. E g, it affects government in policy and decision making as women constitute half of the world population. It has also affected the nations educationally more especially in the African nations where only few women are allow to participate in any unions of their choice. Hence the government should put it into constitution the right for women to participate in any unions of their choice in order to bridge the wide gap between men and women in order to sustain equal development in the world.
