Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When Mozambique gained independence from Portugal in 1975, did the new government live up to promises to liberate women? asks South African-born journalist Urdang, who visited the country several times from 1980 to 1987. Her book is somewhat disorganized, skipping around chronologically as she covers the colonial era, independence and the status of women. But she is a perceptive and talented reporter who offers moving portraits of Mozambican women, many of whom work grueling days in the fields and relentlessly taxing nights as homemakers and mothers in a technology-poor society. Urdang finds that the lot of women has improved, with equal pay at factory jobs and better benefits. But emancipation has been jeopardized by the uncertain political climate and other obstacles (a disastrous relocation program that removed so-called "nonproductive" people from major urban centers, the customs of buying wives and of polygamy and resistance to educating girls). Urdang concludes that the determined women of Mozambique will "continue to build and rebuild against incredible odds and continue to hope for a better life." Photos.

Format: Hardcover
Stephanie Urdang is my Mother. I would like to say that she is one of the most amazing women I have ever come across, and I'm not just saying that because I'm her daughter. I was brought up around such amazing people from all over the world who, like my parents, were very socially-conscience and wanted to make a difference in the world. My Mum is from South Africa, and she knows how apartheid and hate can affect a person- especially women. She now works at UNIFEM at the United Nations, and throughout the past year she has spent her time and energy working with many others to come up with ways to help women all over the world and spread awareness of the true meaning of being a woman. If you want to learn more about the struggles and pride-crushing situations women in Mozambique and all over the world go through every day, then do yourself a favour and buy this book. It will forever change your view on women and what women can accomplish even in the hardest of times. Thank you for your time.
