Mother Is Gold, Father Is Glass: Gender and Colonialism in a Yoruba Town - used book

ID: 7038227

Lorelle D. Semley explores the historical and political meanings of motherhood in West Africa and beyond, showing that the roles of women were far more complicated than previously thought. While in K?tu, B?nin, Semley discovered that women were treasurers, advisors, ritual specialists, and colonial agents in addition to their more familiar roles as queens, wives, and sisters. These women with special influence made it difficult for the French and others to enforce an ideal of subordinate women. As she traces how women gained prominence, Semley makes clear why powerful mother figures still exist in the symbols and rituals of everyday practices. activism,africa,benin,gay and lesbian,history,nonfiction,parenting and families,science and math,social science,social sciences Gay & Lesbian, Indiana University Press
