Book Description

Women's roles in African societies are often misunderstood and underestimated. Contrary to the popular notion that African women are completely dependent on their husbands and male relatives, studies have shown that women bear greater responsibilities than men in their families. Research also suggests that colonial rulers were afraid of African women's spiritual abilities in anticolonial resistance and therefore sought to eliminate such women.
