MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book provides an important African perspective to the international debate and struggle for women's human rights. It focuses on social, economic and cultural rights of women, within a human rights framework, that has long been biased towards civil and political rights. The contributors' essays will lead to greater understanding of the gender dimensions of the human rights challenges faced by women in Africa, especially in areas dealing with the HIV/AIDS epidemic, religious fundamentalism, violence and the rights of female children and adolescents. The book is essential reading for students and academics in Women's Studies, African Studies and International Studies as well as for human rights activists." - Professor Filomina Chioma Steady, Wellesley College

"A lucid contribution to human rights discourses that focuses on the concrete realities of gender and culture in Africa." - Francoise Lionnet UCLA, author of Postcolonial Representations: Women, Literature, Identity.

"This is a work of considerable significance in terms of its concerns, scope and approaches. The materials which illuminate key gender perspectives to invigorate human rights interventions clearly demonstrate the unsustainability of the conventional dichotomy between the so-called generations of human rights in a context characterized by the material challenges that confront Africa." - Leslye Obiora, Professor of Law and Founder, Institute for Research on African Women, Children, and Culture (IRAWCC)
