This book is a comparative study on women, governance and democratization in Nigeria and Ghana. It addresses the major challenges facing women in their attempt to move from their marginalised position. It focuses on the past, the present, and what the future holds as they interact globally in this era of Third Wave Feminism, in a world where women more than before desire emancipation and integration into political processes and governance. It also examines the governments' commitment to international covenants and obligations entered into by them. In a world of globalisation where domestic rules and norms are being overshadowed by international supremacy, the book reviews why women in these two Anglophone countries are yet to attain the expected bench mark in spite being signatories to international treaties as they affect gender relations. In addition, this publication, compares the two countries, proffers solutions to address the injustices against women while suggesting ways of ensuring their participation in politics, governance and development at all levels, which will foster gender equity and a just society.
