Abstract:     
The paper examines the legal effect of economic and social rights in Nigeria. It relates this to the property rights of women in the capacity of a daughter, a wife and a widow. It argues that the property rights of women in its practical manifestation does not actualise the economic and social rights in Nigeria. The discourse makes recommendations towards the reform of Nigerian property law in this area.
