Why is it important?

The work shows that since Africa's continent is in dire need of development in every segments, there is the need to encourage women whose populations exceeds that of men in helping the continent to development. Secondly, the work argues constructively that if Africa must make any meaningful progress, women must be afforded the opportunity to become more creative in their day-to-day living experiences


Conducting a review of such work was indeed a beautiful experience for me. It comprises .any established scholars of gender and feminism studies from diverse academic fields. Such tapestry have enriched my understanding of gender relations in Africa.
