Just over 50 years ago several African countries drew up new Constitutions which included protocols such as the Protocol on the Rights of Women. Decades later, has constitutional reform brought gender equality to women in Africa? And what does gender equality mean in the everyday lives of women on the continent?

The contributors to this volume provide insights into women's rights in seven African countries - Cote d'Ivoire, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa and Uganda. Each looks at the causes, context and consequences of the struggle to uphold women's rights. Their case studies illustrate property-grabbing in Malawi, women's citizenship in Nigeria, and the rise of hate crimes and sexual violence against black lesbians in South Africa, among other issues.
