Given the notorious reputation that African men have of being patriarchal and often not paying serious attention to their female offspring, the subject of African men's attitudes to their daughters has also been neglected in the field of African family studies. By combining essays from women about their African fathers and vice versa, this anthology not only provides a significant set of insights into the relationship between fathers and daughters but also explores the gap in the perception of African fatherhood.
