The African woman faces challenges from all corners: cultural barriers, economic opportunity, inequality, male chauvinism, and misogyny. The place of women in development has attracted worldwide attention to the extent that United Nations recognizes the crucial role of women in all societies. The body declared 1976-1985 as the decade for women and since then observed every March 8 as the International Women’s Day.

In Africa, women have made significant progress in political and economic development in an environment hostile to women liberation. The continent produced the first female president, a record the United States is yet to accomplish.

So how have African women faired in contemporary political and economic environment where a lot of odds stack against the attainment of their full potentials.

Africa Public Square examines women in development from the African perspective.
