  • Le témoignage bouleversant d'une jeune femme qui fut abusée par son beau-père durant des années.

    En 2011, forte de sa licence en droit, Tina Renton parvient à faire mettre derrière les barreaux l'homme qui a abusé d'elle pendant des années : David Moore, son beau-père. De ses six ans jusqu'à son quinzième anniversaire, Tina a subi les pires sévices sexuels. Mais personne, ni sa mère ni l'enseignante qu'elle avait alertée, n'a pris des mesures pour la protéger.
    Seule, en colère, sans endroit où se réfugier, Tina a traversé cette épreuve, convaincue qu'un jour elle obtiendrait justice.

  • This edited collection explores the lives, consequences and motivations of female researchers in Africa, giving unprecedented insights into how their gender-and sometimes their ethnicity and age-impacted on their research experiences, and how doing research in Africa affected them as women. Each contributor considers her place or position in the research process and provides a vivid portrait of that experience. Drawing on research findings from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Ghana, Guinea, Malawi, Uganda and other African countries, the book looks at gender and identity as a female researcher in Africa; relationships with 'others'; and unique methodological challenges for female researchers in Africa. With refreshing candour, each chapter challenges other researchers in Africa (both women and men), to integrate critical reflections of gender and diverse gendered field experiences into their work.

    Women Researching in Africa will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines including development studies, anthropology, geography, gender studies and international studies.
