As Ghana goes through a process of change and tries to be more democratic in governance, the evaluation of existing institutions and transforming them to become more relevant in contemporary times becomes more crucial.
Governance has become more participatory with citizens having the freedom to question and contribute in different ways to the development of the country.
The discussion therefore will raise issues such as: Is the Muslim woman restricted in her leadership roles?
What are the factors that have influenced the leadership role of women?
However, I shall illustrate with the Ghana Muslim Mission, with examples from the Ghana Muslim Mission and FOMWAG, organizations of which I am a member.
It may be difficult to draw any specific conclusion, though I shall attempt to highlight some critical issues.
I will also highlight the Islamic understanding of leadership.
