This book is an ambitious, extensive and detailed analysis of the roles played by African women in seven revolutionary movements in post World War II Africa. The revolutionary movements covered in this book occurred in: Algeria, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The book describes and analyzes the nature and impact of women's participation in these revolutionary movements. Drawing on the theoretical formulations and advances in economics and economic theory, political science, sociology, anthropology, education, history (of several countries), and feminist studies, this book is a significant contribution to the study of African women's history and struggle in recent African history. African women's struggles for liberation in these movements are studied, and analyzed in one work.
