The relationship between African women and Feminism is one fraught with controversy. Inherent in this connection is the question of whether assumptions made by Western feminists about women's place in society are cross-cultural or relevant to Africa's situation. This book tackles the misrepresentation of African women by both black and white American feminists and thereby explores the implications of the dominance of Western scholarship in the production of knowledge about Africa.
