African Women : A Modern History. Catherine Coquery-Vidrovitch. Over the last century, the social and economic roles played by African women have evolved dramatically. Long confined to home and field, overlooked by their menfolk and missionaries alike, African women worked, thought, dreamed, and struggled. This sweeping and innovative book is the first to reconstruct the full history of women in sub-Saharan Africa. Comparing case studies drawn from throughout the region, she sheds light on issues ranging from gender to economy, politics, society, and culture. Utilizing an impressive array of sources, she highlights broad general patterns without overlooking crucial local variations.
