Aidoo-Snyder Book Prize

The Aidoo-Snyder Book Prize was established in 2004 by the Women’s Caucus of the African Studies Association, and is awarded each year to an outstanding book that prioritizes African women’s experiences. Named in honor of Ama Ata Aidoo, the celebrated Ghanaian novelist and short-story writer, and Margaret Snyder, the founding director of UNIFEM, this $500 prize seeks to acknowledge the excellence of contemporary scholarship being produced by women about African women. The prize alternates every year, and alternates between scholarly and creative works.
