INTRODUCTION In this essay, I employ the diegetic method to examine the scholarly works of six Association of Third World Studies (ATWS) and African Studies and Research Forum (ASRF) female professionals--namely, Peyi Soyinka-Airewele, Theodora Ayot, Doyin Coker-Kolo, Rita Kiki Edozie, Mueni wa Muiu, and Mojubaolu O1ufunke Okome. The major purpose of the paper is to highlight the academic work of some of our leading female scholars. This is in line with the tradition of the ATWS and the ASRF--the latter being an affiliate organization of the former--that pride themselves in promoting total equality between the sexes and other social groups in all of their activities. These scholars' academic merit is demonstrated by examining their analytical styles and subjectivity and objectivity contestations. They are the first six female professionals of the ATWS/ASRF selected for review as part of a larger book project because of their substantive research activities; early tenure and promotion; and holding key positions in the ASRF, ATWS and/or other major academic organizations.
