Black Sisters, Speak Out: Feminism and Oppression in Black Africa, very rare

£39.99

Product description

Poligamy, clitoridectomy and sewing up the vagina (infibulation) are the weapons used by men to control millions of women. In this book, Awa Thiam, a black African feminist, lets some of the most oppressed women in the world speak for themselves. She makes plain that these practices are not remote and "barbaric", but part of a pattern of universal violence from men towards women. The answer to the problem lies in direct political action, but action linked to international feminism.
1986, Pluto Press, Softcover
Very Good condition. Some tanning but no inscriptions or foxing. A rare and out of print book.
