Abstract:In this article is shown how value conflict effects the viewpoint and status of the Zairian woman, first in relation to herself and then in regard to her social and political attitudes. The formal data for this analysis came from notes taken during 28 intensive open-ended interviews conducted in 1974-5 with a scientifically-chosen sample of professional women who represented slightly over one-third of the total to be found in Lubumbashi, The respondents were nurses, teachers, university assistans and directors of clinics and homemaking schools. The majority has received about three years of post-secondary education. Ref.
