Women speaking for women in the academia

Hello Dear Club Members, I trust you are doing great.
Once more, it has always been my pleasure to share with you a couple of books by women in the academia. These are books I have read and I strongly believe it is relevant, especially for those interested in issues on Politics, Security and Development; feminism, masculinity and gender from an African perspective.

1. When Hens Begin to Crow: Gender and Parliamentary Politics in Uganda, Sylvia Tamale, Fountain Publishers, Kampala- Uganda,1999
When Hens Begins to Crow is a thoughtful and thought-provoking review of the past and current experience of women in politics in Uganda. With clarity and eloquence, Sylvia Tamale portrays the complexities involved in Uganda’s effort to promote the advancement of women through affirmative action at a parliamentary level. ..(Jessica Neuwirth)

2. Women and the Remarking of Politic in Southern Africa: Negotiating Autonomy, Incorporation and Representation, Gisela Geisler, Nordiska Afrikainstitutet,2004
Women and the Rethinking of Politics in Southern Africa is an excellent piece of research that provides deep insight on women’s experience in the politics within the Southern Africa bloc. The study looks at women’s struggle from the inception of most women movement. Geisler work is based on intense and strategic interviews, press analysis etc.

Re:Thanks for posting

Hello Lakitalki, I am afraid, i have no idea about (Transnational) feminists in Cameroon. I wish I could. Personally, I have been trying to know the FIDA Cameroon, their works and how i can engage with them. Please dear, should you know of any Cameroon feminist (transnational) , do well to introduce her to me. I will be so so happy to know my Cameroonian feminists sisters.

Stay Blessed

Transnational Feminists in Cameroon

Hi Dear, what a challenging assignment you gave me. The question you asked made me to think about the women activism in Cameroon as opposed to other nations. And for that reason, I am gradually sourcing for information on Cameroon Women of Courage. Luckily enough, my Uncle who is also a vibrant political activist help me with a few names;

1. Henriette EKWE, a publisher and editor of a French weekly newspaper called, "BEBELAH". A few months ago she won an international Women's award for Women's activism given by the American Secretary of State

2. Kah Walla, Founder of the NGO "OBOSO", Hopefuls Presidential Candidate 2011.

3. Dr(Mrs) Tamanjong, the Secretary-General of the SDF. But apart from her being the SG of the SDF

Lakitalki, I am still in my search and I am thinking that by the moment, i have around 15 names; I will do an interview of them, telling their stories. What do you think?

Stay Blessed
