Abstract: The study examined a review of literature on African cultural belief on housing development and ownership by women, barrier and ways for management. Studies on gender and housing have focused on roles of women in housing development and involvement in decision making. The paper observed that in development of housing, women face challenges as cultural factors affect involvement in housing developments processes. Also, socio-cultural and traditional practices, norms and beliefs inhibit women’s engagement in housing developments processes. The study recommends government policies should be enacted to encourage female participants in housing development processes and patience is needed to achieve the desired goals in order to make urban housing development acceptable for both men and women.
