One of the most dramatic developments in the past decades is the entry of women into economic and political sphere previously occupied almost exclusively by men. In Gender Empowerment, equality and Economic Development, the contributors expand the discourse in closing gender gaps and empowering them to expand their hidden potentials at the service of the people. We appeal to men to make the necessary dramatic turn-about and embrace empowerment and equality as a participatory. collaborative, consensual and contribution towards building a healthy society for the progressive collective good for present and future generations. The contributors argue that learning from experiences of other countries constitutes a significant way forward for Africa to turn the tide for a better welfare for the people. The book tells the story of collecting the billion of words that continue to make women no longer as second class citizens.
