The Legacy

by Tsitsi V. Himunyanga-Phiri

This new Zambian woman writer is a leader in Zambia on issues concerned with women and development. In her first novel she puts into focus the degrading beliefs and practices of a male-dominated society. Dealing, for example, with issues of widowhood and sexual exploitation, the novel's message is a call for a change in attitude towards the issue of inheritance. But the novel does not fall into the trap of blaming all such societal ills on culture and men; rather she enjoins women themselves to fight for their rights and not assume that a man should do everything for them.
