Abstract:Insofar as peasant women have arguably been the most oppressed section of Mozambican society in colonial times, their ability to overcome their oppression must surely be an indicator of social progress in Mozambique. This paper describes what the situation of peasant women has been in southern Mozambique and how it has - or has not - changed since independence. The postindependence analysis is focused on three areas: the relation of women to the political process, to domestic social relations, and to non-domestic relations of production. Notes.
