This is a ground breaking inquisition into the relationships between women as are presented in the works of Africa's most outspoken female writers, Nawal El-Saadawi and Buchi Emecheta. The book highlights the fact that women are indeed, the more powerful of the two sexes, hence the emphasis on matriarchal theory. Razinat Mohammed is able to bring to the fore, the tripartite theory of Masculinity,Matriachy and indeed, the Amazon theories to espouse the belief that women are not passive in the areas of oppressing one another. In fact, the book draws attention to the fact that the roles of women in the African society, are not determined by their sex because frequently, African matriachs of the Igbos that Emecheta writes about, have been known to play both male and female roles. Additionally, the book breathes hope into the much troubled women's emancipation struggles that have plagued most societies for centuries.
