Vivian is a PhD student at the School of Politics and International Studies. Her PhD explores the intersections of gender and water governance in northern Ghana.
Summary of research: My PhD employs African feminisms to challenge dominant narratives of mainstream feminism. This is justified as mainstream feminism, which is often Eurocentric and has less considerations for the complex Intersections across the world of women dominates development discourse across the globe. The problem is the creation of a fiction of how women issues could be solved, which in praxis does not work in all contexts. My research objective is there to challenge the lapses in mainstream feminism as it has penetrated discourses of water governance in some Global South countries such as Ghana.
