Abstract

[en] This work analyses the consequences of colonisation and gender oppression on African women in Tsitsi Dangarembga's Nervous Conditions. The first part of the work examines how education, language and religion contributed in creating discrepancies between men and women. The second part deals with the consequences of the patriarchal system supported by tradition and the last part focuses on the possibilities of resistance and empowerment for the women in Nervous Conditions.
