History, Challenges, and Prospects

The contributors of this book look at the achievements of the movements from their roots in the post-independence period to the contemporary moment. Themes include: women's activism in colonial Uganda; contributions to girls' education; women's agency in business and the economy; women in agriculture, and the struggle for land; and women's role in conflict resolution, religious institutions, and the media, The book also contains sections on women's writing and publishing and the importance of creative work for wider female independence and self-determination, an overview of women's studies/research 1986- 2001, and brief biographies of Ugandan women leaders.
