From the Back Cover:

Women in Sub-Saharan Africa is one of four volumes in the Restoring Women to History series. The original teaching packets on which the series is based, published in 1988 by the Organization of American Historians, played a key role in the revision of the history curriculum and the incorporation of women into the study of world history. The explosion of scholarship on women over the past decade has prompted a major re-examination and expansion of the original materials into four separate volumes. Dealing with women in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Middle East, these volumes consider what questions are in currency at this stage in the field of women's history, what type of evidence is available, and what gaps exist within the scholarship. Each volume features an introduction by an expert in the history of the area. The general introduction by Cheryl Johnson-Odim and Margaret Strobel sets out the general themes and issues that emerge from the series and addresses points of comparison and difference between the regions. The aim of Restoring Women to History is to demonstrate the value of comparative history while generating new questions and shedding new light on current scholarship in the non-Western world.

In this volume, Iris Berger focuses on East and southern Africa, tracing women's history from earliest times to the present. By exploring the place of women in social, economic, political, and religious life, Berger highlights their varied and changing position in society through shifts over time in ideas about gender and the complex connections between women's public and private worlds. The essay by E. Frances White examines the status and activities of women in the West and Central Africa, from the earliest periods, through the rise of various kingdoms and states, to the establishment of colonies and independent nations. It looks at women's participation in trade, including the slave trade and agriculture; women's political roles in chiefship, other leadership positions, and nationalist movements; and the current constraints under which women function.
