For Women and the Nation by Cheryl Johnson-Odim

Book Description

Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti was a Nigerian feminist who fought for suffrage and equal rights for her countrywomen long before the second wave of the women's movement in the United States. She also joined the struggle for Nigerian independence as an activist in the anticolonial movement. "For Women and the Nation" is the story of this courageous woman, one of a handful of full-length biographies of African women activists. It will be welcomed by students of women's studies, African history, and biography, as well as by opponents of the Nigerian military regime that has held one of her sons, Dr. Beko Ransome-Kuti, in solitary confinement since August 1995. Cheryl Johnson-Odim, chair and associate professor of history at Loyola University in Chicago, is coeditor of "Expanding the Boundaries of Women's History". Nina Emma MBA, senior lecturer in history at the University of Lagos, Nigeria, is the author of "Nigerian Women Mobilized" and "Ayo Rosijc".
