An Archive of Activism: gender and public history in postcolonial Ghana

This research project will focus on Ghanaian women’s organising and campaigning strategies under military, single-party, and short-lived multi-party governments, particularly in the under-studied period between the mid 1960s and the early 1990s. During this time, Ghanaian women negotiated national priorities, cultural particularities and universalist ambitions, both at home and as part of an international women’s movement.
