Format: Paperback
This book is very well written, provocative (as the title suggests) of patriarchal ideologies spanning different cultural contexts. I particularly liked the article touching on agency in Kenya, which cleverly weaves the feminist discourse from pre-colonial, through colonial and post-colonial reactions by women in Kenya. Though a 1995 publication, the theoretical discussions are still very applicable today.
