Banner at Makerere University (photo by me)

This post brought to you by a number of excellent articles I’ve recently found highlighting women’s activism in Africa and elsewhere.

  • I was put in mind of the banner above by this profile of Dr Sarah Nyendwoha Ntiro, another early female student at Makerere and the first woman from east or central Africa to graduate from Oxford.  “When Ntiro joined Makerere College … the male Maths lecturer advised her to ask for and go to where ‘female’ courses like knitting and tailoring were taught.”  She went on to push for women’s access to public education in Uganda and Kenya
