African Women’s Movements By Aili Mari Tripp, Isabel Casimiro, Joy Kwesiga and Alice Mungwa
Women burst onto the political scene in Africa after the 1990s, claiming more than one-third of the parliamentary seats in countries like Angola, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Burundi. This book examines the convergence of factors behind these dramatic developments, including the emergence of autonomous women’s movements, changes in international and regional norms regarding women’s rights and representation, the availability of new resources to advance women’s status, and the end of civil conflict.
