Country:Ghana, 2006 - 2007
Title:Women and Higher Education
Description:The study employed qualitative methodology to offer descriptive details of the experiences of women in higher education institutions in Ghana as faculty and administrators.

Types:participant observer

Country:Ghana, 2009 - 2010
Title:Gender Mainstreaming in Ghana's Public Sector
Description:This study analyzed the programs and polices geared towards gender mainstreaming in six Ministries, Departments and Agencies through questionnaires and interviews. The research sought to ascertain how the Public Sector prioritizes gender issues and what level of capacity exists in terms of training, resources, and political will for gender mainstreaming. The study revealed that women’s empowerment and gender concerns in public sector has been slow. This is due deeply entrenched cultural and traditional beliefs which have encroached into the workplace.

Title:Intersection of Society, Traditions and Modernisation: Delusions of Progress for Women
