Abstract

This collection, therefore, sought to encourage authors to inquire about the relationship between biology, bodies, sex and gender that may inform a re-formulation of personhood and rights in contemporary African societies. The cumulative work presented here assist in charting some of the current debates about the relationship between biology, sex and gender and the social recognition or mis/recognition of persons, and their sexual and reproductive capacities.
