This article reviews and discusses the critical writing of Sylvia Tamale, a legal scholar based at the University of Makerere. For the past 30 years, Professor Tamale has been a leading feminist theorist and activist, working at the intersections of law, sexuality, culture, and gender. A prolific and provocative writer, Sylvia Tamale's oeuvre has been critical in galvanising debates on the scope of feminist theories and theory's implications for driving continental activist agendas.
