In order to avoid continuous seasoned scientist/professional female gender polarization and marginalization in our society, Cameroon Professional Research Oriented Women Network (CaPROWN) took up the initiative – under the sponsorship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (AvH) – to propagate a trans-disciplinary research review approach to seek collaboration outside the bounds of female scientific professional experiences to make new discoveries, explore different perspectives, express and exchange ideas, and gain new insights into gender through peer-reviewed volumes like this. Thus, this book is not solely about gender-related research topics, but rather on works of mostly female researchers that have gone through reviewed lenses of experts of different science disciplines.
