Summary
"Women and Leadership in West Africa explores factors that give rise to different types of female leadership in West Africa, with in-depth study in the Mano River Union countries of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. These countries have directly or indirectly experienced civil wars for more than a decade in recent years. This book presents a compelling indigenous theoretical framework for understanding female leadership. It offers an alternative to male-dominated and politically-inspired authoritarian and war-prone leadership. It also provides a powerful narrative for humanizing the state. The book's distinctive quality is its use of an indigenous model which showcases women's own words, theories, and perspectives"--
