ABSTRACT
The article offers information on African women emancipation. It states that women in Africa have stepped into the modern world with political independence. It also states that the number of school going students have increased in Kenya, and majority of them are girls. Kenyan women have started earning their money by working as shopgirls, typists, and clerks. Women are also working as paratroopers and police officers in Congo and Nigeria. Biologist Letitia Obeng, teacher-training school head Jacqueline Ki-Zerbo, and dramatist Janet Young are several successful women in Africa.
