How Worthy Is the Woman of Worth?

Full Product Description

Colonialism and apartheid have affected the identity and self-definitions of Africans in South Africa (African-South Africa) to a great extent. Given the history of subjugation, suppression, and subordination, the definition of what Africanness means was therefore distorted. Conversely, the history of patriarchal domination in pre-colonial African-South Africa up to now, has distorted what ideal African womanhood should be. As a response to this scenario, Madipoane Masenya (ngwana' Mphahlele) uses the Bosadi (womanhood) approach to reread the paean of Proverbs 31: 10-31 in a way that will hopefully resuscitate and restore the dignity of many African-South African wo(men) readers of this favorite biblical text.

How Worthy Is the Woman of Worth? by Madipoane Masenya was published by Peter Lang Publishing Inc in March 2004. The ISBN for How Worthy Is the Woman of Worth? is 9780820469201.
