Ghana’s Feminist Movement Aspirations, Challenges, Achievements

The Path of Ghanaian gender politics – issues relating to gender hierarchies in the state, women’s status, influence in politics and social life – the relationship between the state and women’s organizations (which I refer to as Ghana’s feminist experience) has gone through various changes since independence in 1957. This monograph traces the feminist experiences in Ghana from the pre-independence period, and attempts to tease out the main currents in the nature of women’s political participation and agency.
