Demanding Dignity

18 June 2001

A new report – Demanding Dignity: Women Confronting Economic Reforms in Africa – from the North-South Institute, Canada, examines African women’s struggles to deal with gender-bias in financial and economic policies. The report presents thirteen case studies from Togo, Mali, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Nigeria, Kenya, Chad and Ghana. It documents women’s experiences regarding gender and social justice in relation to structural adjustment programmes, Export Processing Zones, loan and financial services, and monetary policy related to agriculture and food security.
