Winner of the 2007 Aidoo-Snyder Scholarly Book Prize

This groundbreaking book by two leading scholars offers a complete historical picture of women and their work in Uganda, tracing developments from precolonial times to the present and into the future. Setting women’s economic activities into a broader political, social, and cultural context, it provides the first general account of their experiences amid the changes that shaped the country.

“A valuable addition to collections supporting African or women’s studies. Highly recommended.
