This volume traces the origins of the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians, a group of African women theologians established in the 1980s. It is a movement which has been dedicated to research, publication and support of African women. The book traces a struggle against excluding and alienating practices from Western missionary tradition and African cultural transpositions in contemporary Church and society. The theology of advocacy which has emerged encourages African women to develop theologies of empowerment from their histories and struggles, and addresses the multiple crises which the continent faces. The problems of culture, ethics and post-colonialism are explored in the issues surrounding ubiquitous violence against women on the continent and the continuation of clitoridectomy as an enduring strategy for making gender and clan for some African peoples.
