Sexe, genre et société : engendrer les sciences sociales africaines( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la couverture : "Cet ouvrage représente la traduction du livre intitulé 'Engendering African social', issu des travaux d'un atelier organisé par le Codesria en 1991. Son ambition est de jeter les bases d'une analyse pertinente des rapports sociaux entre les sexes. Il propose une critique et des orientations neuves dans les sciences sociales en Afrique. Il fournit en particulier des orientations méthodologiques pour intégrer la perspective relative au genre. Les contributions réunies dans ce volume ont été rédigées selon des approches disciplinaires différentes, mais leur point commun réside dans une volonté affirmée d'opérer une véritable rupture épistémologique dans les sciences sociales africaines. Une telle entreprise est énorme mais les contributeurs ont réussi à relever les défi. En effet, par leur complémentarité et la richesse des regards croisés de spécialistes de nationalités et de générations différentes, ce livre offre uune nouvelle lecture et des catégories originales d'expression de la relation complexe entre genre, sexe et société. Mais ce livre poursuit aussi un combat d'une autre nature, en vue de promouvoir l'égalité entre les sexes et un meilleur accès des femmes au pouvoir et aux ressources. L'approche ainsi retenue est novatrice. Il constituera un outil précieux pour tous ceux qui s'intéressent au processus de production des connaissances en Afrique."
Women in search of citizenship : experiences from West Africa by A Imam( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides insights into what gender inclusive citizenship means as a practice, what can be achieved when it is promoted and what role participatory action research can play. It shares the experiences of women in local communities devising ways to exercise their citizenship. It is about women working on rights and thereby furthering their understanding of citizenship, beginning to speak for themselves and to make claims. It is about women developing their own agency and acting for themselves. And it is about women investigating and addressing institutional barriers in order to ensure their rights have concrete effects in their daily lives. These experiences arose out of an innovative regional program that supported seven women's rights and human rights organizations in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger."
