In the one area where women should be able to command respect and equality, the day-to-day reality of female academics is one of antagonism, difficulty and even physical and mental harassment. Academic freedom in Africa has attracted much recent attention. But few examinations of the subject have incorporated a gender analysis.

Drawing on the experiences of women from Cameroon, Egypt, Malawi, Mauritania, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda, this ground-breaking book examines in detail the realities of academic life. Choice in curricula, underfunding, promotion, relations with other staff and pay conditions are just a few of the critical issues explored.
