In her lecture in the series "Freiburger Afrikagespräche" the economist Prof. Abena D. Oduro from the University of Ghana, Legon (Accra), shows the gender gap that exists with regard to the possession of material and symbolic resources in Ghana. She discusses the importance of marriage and inheritance for the distribution of these resources and shows at which levels the existing imbalance influences the lives of women in Ghana.
