Same Story: Different Narratives

The papers in this Issue address different concerns of women from different perspectives ranging from constitution-making to theology. The authors articulate the concerns of women in development, governance, politics as well as other domains. They seek to demonstrate the different pathways through which women have articulated their concerns. While it is up to the reader to determine whether the different pathways are expressions of African feminism, it is clear that women have a broad range of concerns and can harness different media to communicate these concerns. For instance, by telling their own stories, women have demonstrated that they are a legitimate source of information.
