The Sex Education Debates in Ghana
Lunch and Learn Talk by Regina Fuller
Friday, March 3, 2023
This presentation examines Ghana’s sex education debates from 2018 to 2021, showing how various groups positioned gender, sexuality, and religion in educational policymaking in public discourses. Using meeting ethnography and ethnography of education policy, I argue that the sex education battles are a new example of sexual politics where religion, nationhood and heterosexuality are contested in West Africa.
