Hodgson and McCurdy have assembled a lively, original collection of essays that together explore the ways in which gender roles and relationships were produced and transformed through the daily interactions of women and men during Africa's long twentieth century ... builds on and enriches a growing literature on women's history and gender relations, which is remaking our understanding of African social history in general. - Sara Berry, Professor of History & Anthropology, Johns Hopkins University ... a powerful, historically contextualised and socially relevant collection. It adds to a growing literature on African women that makes visible women's power, voice, action - and women's involvement in making and revising key areas of African history. - Kammila Naidoo in MODERN AFRICAN STUDIES --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
