“In the early 1990s only 4% of Africa’s professoriate were women, and while this number has steadily increased, especially in administrative appointments, there are still few women in top research professorships. Feminist academics have established gender and women’s studies programs, training thousands of women and men better able to challenge masculine domination in policy, govenance, culture and social relations. The heads of CEGENSA (Ghana), CEGRAD (Cape Coast), WORDOC (Ibadan) and the Makerere School of Women and Gender studies discuss the importance of these structures. The conversation will be moderated by renowned veteran sociologist from University of Zimbabwe, Prof Rudo Gaidzanwa.
The 3rd Kwame Nkrumah Pan-African Cultural & Intellectual Festival was sponsored by Feminist Africa, Urgent Action Fund, African Women’s Development Fund with support from the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana.
