The Power of Gender, the Gender of Power focuses on the intersections of gender and power in Africa and the historical roots of inequality as experienced by women. It also explores social institutions that reinforced social hierarchies and distributed power unevenly during the 19th and 20th centuries. Each case study addresses the complexities and state of gender relations and gender workings across disciplines, as well as women's labour, rights and responsibilities. The essays represent a cross section of intellectual thought.
