Established in 2004 the Women's Caucus established the Aidoo-Snyder Book Prize for works in English which prioritize African womens experiences. The Aidoo-Snyder book prize is awarded by the Women's Caucus of the African Studies Association for 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. In alternate years, the prize is awarded for the best scholarly book, or for the best creative work.
For more information about this prize and to see winners from previous years, please visit the Women's Caucus website at http://www.albany.edu/~dlafonde/Global/snyder_book_award.html
