In this paper we examine the development of women's studies in the Portuguese-speaking African countries of Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé e Príncipe. There are notable variations between these nations, as Mozambique has had a strong Gender Studies unit at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane that has supported a range of research projects and publications on women and the law, women's history, and related topics. The other countries have also produced important studies, often focusing on women's experiences in the anti-colonial liberation struggle, and on more recent issues such as women's legal position. The paper draws out the commonalities and differences in approaches to women's studies by providing an overview of the relevant publications over the past thirty years.
