Women of Tropical Africa

Front Cover
Denise Paulme
Routledge, Nov 5, 2013 - Social Science - 328 pages
This book is unique in its approach in that each chapter covers women in their everyday lives and the problems, which concern them. Until now, ethnographic research has almost always been carried out with the help of the male population and as a result the picture that has emerged has been largely the image, which the men, and the men alone, have of their society.
Originally published in 1963.
