Call for Papers: A (Re)Turn to the African Girl - (Re)Defining African Girlhood Studies Edited Collection

Despite a century of efforts to bring about gender justice, women and girls continue to occupy highly disadvantaged positions. It remains a vexing quandary in the twenty-first century that African girls hold less power, wealth, and voice in the public sphere than almost any group globally. Girlhood studies are a critical means to counter the historical tendency for feminist scholarship to center adult women and ignore or marginalize girls.

The African Women’s Studies Centre (AWSC) of the University of Nairobi will hold a conference with the theme: “ African Women’s Journey: Taking Stock.”

The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars involved in research on areas such as; gender issues, policy and practice, women’s socio-economic empowerment; women, politics, leadership and governance as well as documenting and preserving African women’s knowledge and experiences.
