A study about conflicts between men and women in contemporary Kisii, Kenya. The author argues that male identity, sense of worth and prestige have been more deeply affected by socio-economic change than that of female identity. The study emphasizes the need to examine in depth changing African social contexts within collapsing traditional structures.
