New women of Lusaka
New Women of Lusaka examines how educated young women in Zambia’s capital city are adapting to their new social and occupational status in society. The challenges that result from rapid social change appear through vivid descriptions of family, school, and social life in modern Lusaka. The author clearly shows how difficult and painful the process of culture change can be for individuals who become caught up in it through circumstances largely beyond their control.
