The aim of this study is to explore the challenges that adolescent mothers face and why young women engage in risky sexual behaviour, despite the levels of awareness and prevalence rate of HIV and AIDS in the country. The study was conducted in Gutu District, Masvingo Province, among women aged between 15-24 years who had never given birth or were pregnant with their first child. 106pp, ETHIOPIA. OSSREA.

ELIZABETH MUSODZI AND THE BIRTH OF AFRICAN FEMINISM IN EARLY COLONIAL ZIMBABWEELIZABETH MUSODZI AND THE BIRTH OF AFRICAN FEMINISM IN EARLY COLONIAL ZIMBABWE
Yoshikuni, Tsuneo

Mai Musodzi was born in the Gomba area around 1885. As a child, she experienced the first chimurenga, losing her parents in this struggle, before subsequently receiving a mission education at Chishawasha. An orphan, she married Frank Ayema, a policeman originally from what was then called Barotseland (western Zambia), and they settled in Chizhanje (Mabvuku). With five children of her own, Musodzi worked hard to improve not only her life and that of her family, but through her initiative, leadership qualities, determination and hard work, did much to improve the lives of other women in the townships. She was a founder of the Harare African Women’s Club, an instructor in the Red Cross society, and active in various welfare agencies. As a keen gardener and small farmer she inspired women to better themselves through their own efforts, acquiring a reputation of the uncrowned Queen of Harari. B/w illus, 32pp, ZIMBABWE.

THE FRONT LINE RUNS THROUGH EVERY WOMAN: Women & Local Resistance in the Zimbabwean Liberation WarTHE FRONT LINE RUNS THROUGH EVERY WOMAN: Women & Local Resistance in the Zimbabwean Liberation War
O'Gorman, Eleanor

A Zimbabwe-specific study, focusing on the lives of women in a small locale (Chiweshe) during the anti-colonial insurgency, this book is also a challenge to established and still current modes of thought and research orientations which over-simplify the complex realities women face in the full range of violent conflicts, both past and present. By contextualizing the voices of women of Chiweshe, not only is an important and under-developed aspect of Zimbabwean and African history revealed, but a new approach to comprehending the highly-tensioned lives of women in war is presented, which is characterized here as Gendered Localised Resistance. This is examined through the prism of life in the Protected Villages in Chiweshe experienced in everyday social relations, revolutionary roles, and food security. It traces how women forged strategies of survival and resistance in the middle of guerrilla warfare pitted between the forces of the state and the revolutionary resistance movements. 208pp, UK.
