Info: On April 18 th and 19 th, the working group “Feminist Critique” of the Institute of Philosophy and the
Center for Gender Studies of the University of Hildesheim invite you to a workshop with the Nigerian
philosopher Abosede P. Ipadeola. The focus will be on her book Feminist African Philosophy. Women
and the Politics of Difference (2023). In this book, Ipadeola argues that the liberation of African
women from patriarchal constraints is the key to the emancipation and decolonization of contempo-
rary Africa. In this context, she critically examines African philosophical theories for gender-specific
concepts, their stance on the role of women and their analyses of cultural beliefs and practices. The
workshop thus provides insights into central philosophical currents in Africa from the 20t h century as
well as into feminist theory production in Africa.
