Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

How they were treated, how they dressed, if they were to be educated, if and how they married, if they ever experienced sexual pleasure, and even if they were allowed to live were seemingly in the hands of African and British male authority figures. Yet Kenyan women in the first half of the twentieth century nevertheless managed to find their identities for themselves and establish at least some level of control over their own lives. Kanogo (history, U. of California at Berkeley) describes the social and legal status of African women in late colonial times, particularly in Kenya, what was legally and culturally expected of them in terms of their sexuality, ethnicity, and status as a woman, their complex relationship with their own dowries and the family forces behind them, the influence of colonial and traditional medicine and like regulation on their roles as mothers, and the question of whether beings so debased could and should be educated.
