Jepkorir Rose Chepyator-Thomson
Africa World Press, 2005 - 292 pages
Extrait de la couverture : "The phenomenon of globalization has influenced the African social and cultural landscape in a variety of ways. Yet its effect on women's lives has not figured prominently in the scholarship on Africa. ... In this volume, scholars deconstruct important issues and provide perspectives on understanding and transforming women's experiences in Africa. ... Some of the issues highlighted include the education of girls in Kenya, women's role in agriculture and crop production in Africa, women as culture mediators in music, the participation of women in sports, conservation of biodiversity and women in resource management in East Africa, and the informal sector as a survival strategy in Nigeria."
