The interference of associational life and the take-over by the institutions of civil society of the responsibilities of the state, as well as consequent interference in the process of governance, are modern responses to the failed state. Women’s intervention in failed traditional states has been commonplace in Nigeria since the pre-colonial days. However, since the transformation from the traditional state to the imposed European style modern state, women’s associational life in the diminished realm of traditional governance has been equally transformed. This paper will explore the origin, growth and developments of these transformations.
