Voices of African Women: Women's Rights in Ghana, Uganda, and Tanzania
Voices of African Women is a collection of essays by accomplished women’s rights lawyers from Ghana, Uganda, and Tanzania. In the last decade, women’s human rights have been the focus of significant attention at the international level. There remains, however, a dearth of information concerning the application and relevance of international norms at grassroots levels within Africa. There are few works about women’s human rights within Africa that are actually written by African women lawyers and human rights activists. This book offers a glimpse into the lives of women in Ghana, Uganda, and Tanzania; it describes — in their own words — the challenges these activists face in implementing international human rights norms at the local and national levels.
