Abstract:In the introduction of this article, the author schematically indicates the context of an analysis that attempts to describe one limited instance of the impact of colonization on the relations between women and men. Sections: The preconquest period (the importance of cloth; the production and distribution process) - The post-conquest period (colonial penetration and the breakdown of the precolonial production-distribution relationship; Baule cloth and factory cloth) - Women and cloth today: alienation and the reversal of a relationship. Bibliogr., notes, French summary.
