Abena Yalley receives funding from Fritz Thyssen Foundation

Congratulations to Abena Yalley (Postdoctoral Fellow / Literature & Politics and Public Administration): She has received a grant from the Fritz Thyssen Foundation to implement the project "Body Politics: Gender, Healthcare and Obstetric Violence in Nigeria".

The grant covers her own position for 21 months as well as additional funds for travel costs and material expenses.

„In this project, I interrogate the gendered dynamics of obstetric violence in Nigeria“, says Abena Yalley.  „I particularly explore how gender inequality in health systems and society as a whole contribute to women’s experiences of obstetric violence.“
