Query: Sierra Leone Women's Protest Movement 1961-2014

I am in search of materials (books and articles; including newspapers) dealing with the women's protest movements in post-independent Sierra Leone. 
Kindly help me to identify these reading materials, as I am finding it very difficult to access materials on this largely under-researched area.
Moreover, I will also appreciate it if you can help me with the names (and contact details) of women who were actively involved in the protest movements in Sierra Leone between 1961 and 1991.

CFP: Inaugural Conference on International Development, Virginia International University

The Conference on International Development (CID) seeks to explore the latest ideas and innovations in international development and capture new conceptual debates, learned lessons, and best practices in the field. The question of how developmental strategies have changed – and are likely to change in the near future – are especially relevant at this moment as the United Nations is in the process of crafting its post 2015 goals and agenda and as the sector faces increasing challenges, from shrinking budgets to increasing global insecurity.
