Abstract:This issue of African Studies Review contains the second part of the Forum on Women and Gender in Africa, guest edited by Judith Van Allen and Kathleen Sheldon. The first installment of the forum was featured in the December issue (volume 58, number 3), and focused on women in southern Africa. This group of essays includes articles on women in Uganda, Ghana, and Senegal, plus a featured commentary on a new graphic history of women's political resistance in Crossroads, South Africa. Contributions: 'Whether they promised each other some thing is difficult to work out': the complicated history of marriage in Uganda (Rhiannon Stephens); 'Marrying out' for love: women's narratives of polygyny and alternative marriage choices in contemporary Senegal (Hélène Neveu Kringelbach); Expressions of masculinity and femininity in husbands' care of wives with cancer in Accra (Deborah Atobrah and Akosua Adomako Ampofo); Graphic novel histories: women's organized resistance to slum clearance in crossroads, South Africa, 1975-2015 (Koni Benson).
