African women writers have come a long way from the sixties when they were hardly acknowledged or noticed as serious writers. In the past four decades, their works have been steadily rising in quantity and quality. Today these writers are redefining images of womanhood, providing new visions, and reshaping distorted characterizations and representations of African women in fiction. This rapid upsurge of writing by African women has been one of the most dynamic, phenomenal trends of African literature at the end of the twentieth century.
