About this product
- DescriptionAfrican feminism, this landmark volume demonstrates, differs radically from the Western forms of feminism with which we have become familiar since the 1960s. African feminists are t, by and large, concerned with issues such as female control over reproduction or variation and choice within human sexuality, r with debates about essentialism, the female body, or the discourse of patriarchy. The feminism that is slowly emerging in Africa is distinctly heterosexual, pronatal, and concerned with bread, butter, and power issues. Contributors present case studies of ten African states, demonstrating that-as they fight for access to land, for the right to own property, for control of food distribution, for living wages and safe working conditions, for health care, and for election reform-African women are creating a powerful and specifically African feminism.
