Product Description

The phenomenon of globalization has influenced the African social and cultural landscape in a variety of ways. Yet its effect on women’s lives has not figured prominently in the scholarship on Africa. This edited volume attempts to change this by bringing together theoretical and conceptual approaches that place African women at the center of the discourse on global societies.

In the volume, scholars deconstruct important issues and provide perspectives on understanding and transforming women’s experiences in Africa. Writing from diverse academic disciplines and interdisciplinary standpoints, the contributors explore the realities of African women’s lives in connection to processes of globalization.

Some of the issues highlighted include the education of girls in Kenya, women’s role in agriculture and crop production in Africa, women as culture mediators in music, the participation of women in sports, conservation of biodiversity and women in resource management in East Africa, and the informal sector as a survival strategy in Nigeria.

Among the volume’s prominent contributors are Filomina Chioma Steady (Sierra Leone), Caroline Lang’at-Thoruwa (Kenya), Omofolabo Ajayi-Soyinka (Nigeria) and N’Dri Assie-Lumumba (Côte d’Ivoire).
