Nkomo & Ngambi’s comprehensive study on published literature on African women leaders and managers found that there are very few such studies available. The possible lack of information about women and leadership could be attributed to the fact that most African women dominate the informal employment field while most leadership studies tend to focus on leadership in formal organizations (Makombe & Geroy, 2009; Nkomo & Ngambi, 2009).

This led me to seek out how postcolonialism impacted the leadership strategies of African women within the NGO sector.
