dc.description.abstract This article draws on existing literature and a field study conducted by the writer to explore the problems faced by African females when studying abroad. A comparative perspective is adopted and, whilst it is recognised that women are particularly disadvantaged in general, the principal thesis is that African women are particularly disadvantaged, especially when they undertake studies abroad. The article describes and analyses the disadvantages faced by women broadly throughout the world, by African women in general and in education in particular, and the difficulties they face when studying abroad. The implications for policy practice and research are considered and some short-and long-term strategies suggested whereby improvements could be effected. en_US
