Beschreibung:

In the third world countries, there is an urgent need for the promotion of equal rights for all especially women. Although there has been a remarkable burgeoning in the female emancipation struggle in Ghana, there still remains an enormous task in achieving equal rights for women. Ghana is a signatory to most of the international charters and protocols on the respect for the rights of women. Notwithstanding this, women are still being discriminated against in the Ghanaian society in several social contexts. This seems paradoxical and the goal of this book has been to explore the mechanisms that function to reinforce the phenomenon of discrimination against women in Ghana. What is discovered is a complex interplay between culture and low level of education among women in Ghana that have kept the fire of discrimination still glowing. To achieve a true equilibrium in terms of the enjoyment of rights between men and women in Ghana therefore demands simultaneous efforts in abolishing certain detrimental and archaic cultural practices, practices that oppress women, and also a promotion of the education of females in Ghana. This demands both national and international efforts.
