The Joys of Motherhood

 Abstract

 This study explores culture and discrimination against women in Buchi Emecheta’s The Joys of motherhood and Chimamanda Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus. Moreover, the study has shown that over the years, the major challenge facing the female folk is discrimination and unfair treatment in the society. It is also discovered that several cultural practices discriminate and oppress the female folks. However, such practices are identified in the selected texts for this research work and critically examined. Therefore, it is hoped that an awareness of such practices will eventually eradicate the social inequalities that are engendered by such practices in African society.

 CHAPTER ONE – INTRODUCTION

1.1       Background of the Study

Throughout the history, women generally have had fewer legal rights and career opportunities than men, wife hood and womanhood were considered as women’s most significant professions, and they were considered naturally weaker than men. Their right and being were taken for granted. Silence becomes the virtue of women but with education, the silence was broken. However, Champers 21st century dictionary (2004, p. 327) says.

Furthermore, Reuter T. (2011, P. 1) reports that; “Discrimination is to distinguish, single out, or make a distinction in everyday life, when faced with more than one option.” For the purpose of this research work, the definition of women in chambers 21st century dictionary (2004, P. 1631) will be used “women generally the female sex.”. In addition, Wikipedia (2010) assert that; “discrimination against women is the attitude and beliefs in relation to the female gender that they are less important. Thus, such beliefs and attitudes are of social nature and to not normally carry any legal consequences.”

With these definitions, we can therefore define culture and discrimination against women as the culture and practices against the female folks that support men. Certainly, discrimination against women as becomes customs passed from generation. In Africa, many cultural practices are against women. Women are beaten by husbands and are always blamed for not been able to produce children. Even when it is not confirmed that they are responsible for the marital problems, they suffer for those problems. Married woman could be replaced at anytime by their husbands because culture support that men could marry many women.

Female children are not always given the best upbringing in they are trained in the kitchen, instead of school. Male children brought up well because they are known to be the people who will take their family from generation to generation. Therefore, with the use of Buch Emecheta’s work, the joys of motherhood, many discrimination acts against women will be analysed; to signify the cultural practices of discriminatory against women. Also, through the works of Chimamanda Adichie; Purple Hibiscus, discrimination against women will be identified. Cultural practices discriminating against women have been on for long and needs to stop.
