This book examines the significance of the association as platforms for transformation of female identities. Women suffer from male domination and socio-cultural norms and values which deprives them of political power in the community, but do the women's associations work to change this situation for the better or do they confirm and support existing power and gender structures? As some authors are Anglophone and other Francophone, the articles are written either in English with a French abstract or vice versa.
