Prior to the publication of Lloyd Brown's Women Writers in Black Africa (1981), Kenneth Little's Sociology of Urban Women's Image in African Literature (1980; see WLT 55:3, p.518), and Davies and Grave's Ngambika (1986), African feminist criticism existed merely in the form of occasional articles on or interviews with African women writers.
