Summary
This fascinating ethnographic study investigates gendered power in contemporary Nigeria in order to provide an understanding of The Ondo Women's War of 1985. Sanctioned by Ondo's female chiefs in the name of their female king, this tax protest escalated into rebellion when ordinary women threatened the use of their ultimate weapon -their own nakedness. Focusing on a specific Yoruba case history, this book challenges many western feminist assumptions about women's lack of status in Africa
