Women and the War on Boko Haram by Hilary Matfess download in iPad, ePub, pdf
Matfess is right to conclude the fate of Nigeria is tied to the fate of its women, and her book is an important contribution to that discussion.
This is especially salient in the social context in which the Boko Haram insurgency took roots. An important book deserving a wide audience. Matfess cuts through our assumptions to reveal a much more compelling and surprising picture.
This is a masterpiece which stands to become a classic in the study of militant radicalism. Understanding gender politics and empowering women, however, are key to solving not just violence in Nigeria but also to stabilizing other post-conflict African and world societies. The blame can never be laid solely on one side. You are not currently authenticated. In doing so she reveals the grim truth.
