This work examines the history of Ghanaian women's involvement in the politics of the country prior to the launch of the Fourth Republic in January, 1993.
The political history of Ghana prior to 1993 showcases experience with various political systems. Ghana, for example, had the experience of life under Prime Ministers, Presidents and Military Heads of State. Within all these experimental and sometimes even purely adventurous environments, women played various roles. The roles, however, differed from one regime to another.
This work has tried to briefly tell the political history of Ghana but highlighted the role of women in the life of this young West African country..
