dc.description.abstractThe main purpose of this paper is to review the traditional socio-economic functions of the African woman both in the family and the community and the changes they have undergone in the context of the socio-economic transition currently taking place in the African continent. The current process of change into socioeconomic development will therefore be discussed only within the broader framework in which the transition, if any, of the woman's functions will be reviewed. In the course of the review, there will also be an attempt to understand the qualitative implications of the changes on the woman's life situations, particularly with respect to her responsibilities in the family and the community. Recommendations will then be suggested as to how planners, policy makers and women themselves could facilitate more effective implementation by the woman of her roles and functions, both in her interest and that of society as a whole, given their far reaching implications on the welfare of all.en
