The Nigerian Criminal Justice system arose as a part of the State to protect and promote the interests of the citizens of the country. By administering justice the legal order of the State is ensured. But in the administration of the law, certain principles which must be adhered to are violated, such as the rule of due process, legal equality and equity on female offenders. These violations of the rights of female offenders seem to be exacerbated by the very existence of economic, political, social and cultural inequalities operational in the socio-economic order of Nigeria. This paper contends that the problem of the violation of rights of female offenders by the criminal justice system should be addressed as these acts on female offenders are dehumanising and demoralising
