Women Writing Africa - The Eastern Region

The contributions of African women to their respective nations have been documented for generations as letters, speeches, songs, poems, and other oralities, but never before have they been gathered together in one monumental work: The Women Writing Africa Project. This resource is the result of over ten years of dedicated research by the editors and seeks to elucidate voices and stories that have been long ignored and in need of telling. The third volume, The Eastern Region, highlights 23 languages including English, German and Swahili, and five east African countries: Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. It focuses on the daily lives of these women in retellings of personal sufferings and triumphs, parliamentary speeches, fiction, poetry and songs, and the roles of women in creating an educated people in nations free from colonial rule.
