520    This book makes the case for an urgent praxis of critical 
       spatial literacy for African women. It provides a critical
       analysis of how Asante women negotiate and understand the 
       politics of contemporary space in Accra and beyond and the
       effect it has on their lives, demonstrating how they 
       critically "read that world." Additionally, the book 
       provides insight into Asante women's perspectives on their
       urban living conditions, their sense of place in Ghana's 
       capital and the world at large, and how they make sense of
       these contemporary spaces, which are the result of 
       transnational economic and cultural flows. In other words,
       the author discusses and recounts experiences surrounding 
       her development and execution of a renegade African-
       feminist architecture project that reveals Asante women's 
       critical literacy of contemporary space in terms of what 
       they describe as its significant socio-spatial effects of 
       akwantu, anibuei, ne sikasem: that is, travel, 
       'civilization,' and economics
