Gender equality is a fundamental human right. No society can make any meaningful progress when there is inequality. This is mainly because genderbased inequality promotes social injustices, discrimination as well as poverty among the discriminated sex; this phenomena directly contradicts the principles of sustainable development as well as good governance. Gender inequality also undermines inclusiveness, which is a significant growth accelerator. Gender issues are greatly influenced by culture, level of education, religion and the theory of the supremacy of one sex over the other; the very nature of the underlying causes of gender inequality makes the arrival at a lasting solution to global gender challenge a hard nut to crack. Women are important aspect of the society, whose contributions spans beyond building a sustainable family to building a sustainable society, the realization of women’s potential is an essential driver not only for economic growth but for achieving full sustainable development, both for the current generation as well as future ones. Gender issues have a significant impact on social change and sustainable development. Because the inequitable distribution of power in gender relations, the exercise of rights, access and control of resources and participation in decisionmaking processes remain a significant setback to the holistic development of women, as well as to their chances of benefiting from the dividends of democracy. As a consequence, examining the nexus between development and gender inequality and how they interact with other factors affecting sustainable development, therefore, becomes imperative. This paper, therefore, is set to explore concepts, issues and relationship between gender issues, social change and sustainable development.
