Women’s Liberation and the African Freedom Struggle (1990)

This brief collection of speeches and essays by former President of Burkina Faso, Thomas Sankara (1949-1987), reflects his thoughts on female participation in politics and society. Before he was assassinated in Ouagadougou, his beliefs about social inclusion were considered revolutionary and unprecedented. This short read contests the notion that African society and African men, in particular, object to gender equality and indigenous feminism.
