WGS 255 - Women in Africa


What contributions have women made to the societies of Africa prior to colonialism? How and why did colonialism affect men and women differently? What are the implications of gender inequality for economic development in Africa today? These questions are consid­ered from ethnographic, autobiographical and fictional accounts. Gender, class and cultural identity will be focal points.
