by Susan Arndt (editor) - £26.99  Africa World Press (2003)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780865438989 | ISBN 10: 0865438986

In her book, Susan Arndt discusses and defines the nature of African feminism and African-feminist literatures. Taking account of African-feminist literaturesí heterogeneity as well, in a second step its varieties are discussed and grouped into a classification model. Arndt distinguishes three main currents of feminism: reformist, transformative and radical African-feminist literatures. The workability of this classification model is put to the test, illustrated and exemplified with interpretations of selected African-feminist prose texts by African women writers of different regional, religious and generational backgrounds: Grace Ogot, Ifeoma Okoye, Flora Nwapa, Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo, Mariama B‚, Buchi Emecheta, Bessie Head, Pat Ngurukie, Nawal El Saadawi and Calixthe Beyala.
