This volume contributes to the academic debate on gender in Africa. The contributors explore different questions from a multidisciplinary perspective, reflecting their different research backgrounds. Through individual case studies, the authors focus on the complex social encounters regarding marital relations, religion, sexuality, equality, agency, identity and the public discourses that shape these experiences. The case studies explore how social encounters inform choices and agency, thus deepening our understanding of gender relations in contemporary Africa.
