The study examined demographic variables associated with women’s participation in trade unionism in Southwest, Nigeria. The descriptive research design of the survey type was used in this study. The population consisted of all women who are civil and public servants in Southwest, Nigeria while 2,352 civil and public servants who were women selected from 30 Ministries (MDAs) and 3 public tertiary institutions made up the sample of the study. The samples were selected using a multistage sampling procedure. A questionnaire designed by the researcher tagged “Demographic Factors and Women Participation in Trade Unionism Questionnaire (DFWPTUQ)” was used to collect relevant data for the study. The data collected with the questionnaire were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The three hypotheses were tested using inferential statistics involving Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) and t-test. The study revealed that women’s participation in trade unionism was not determined by their religion or age, but marital status as single women participated in trade unionism than married women. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended among others that religious leaders should encourage women to participate in trade union activities because they have some important role to play in nation-building.
