ASPECTS OF FEMALE STRUGGLE IN BINWELL SINYANGWE’S A COWRIE OF HOPE.
Binwell Sinyangwe’s A Cowrie of Hope exposes the plight of Gambian women enmeshed in the trap of patriarchy and the struggle they initiate to free themselves from this suffocating system. These struggles are epitomized by Nasula, an illiterate woman who shoulders the burden of resistance. In his will to contribute to the building of a genderless society which empowers women, Sinyangwe makes this female struggle result into success. This paper scrutinizes this struggle in a Marxist Feminist perspective.
