Gender, Culture and Development in Africa
Gender, Culture and Development in Africa interrogates ways in which gender, culture, and development in the African context reinforce, shape, and reshape one another. In four parts, comprising fifty chapters, the book provides stimulating debates and constructive engagements about the enactment of gender and power relations within the African context and its implications for development outcomes. The engaging and carefully organised chapters furnish the readers with a sumptuous “buffet” of narratives, pedagogical dialogues and critical discourses on African women and men in their varied cultural, political, economic and social contexts. The multidisciplinary approach traversing literary studies, education, political science, religious studies, linguistics, history, economics, and law, amongst others, makes the book relevant to scholars of gender and African studies across these disciplines.
