Women's Spiritual Leadership in Africa. Tempered Radicals and Critical Servant Leaders. 2010. Faith Wambura Ngunjiri. NY: State University of New York Press. 259 pp. $ 60 (Hardcover). A review on research carried out on women's and gender studies by researchers and activists based in English-Speaking sub-Saharan Africa identified: health; gender-based violence; sexuality, education, globalization and work; and politics, the state and nongovernmental organizations as the common feminist issues (Ampofu, Beoku-Betts, Njambi&Osirim, 2004). Few studies have focused on women leadership in Africa beyond the political realms, an area that is profoundly gendered. The central focus of Faith Wambura Ngunjiri's book is to determine how women interpret their experience as leaders, including how they are able to thrive and be effective in spite of challenges to their authority.
