Trials and Triumphs: Dilemma of African Women
By: Monica Zunny
In this book the writer highlights some of the salient and true dilemmas that the average West African woman faces. Trials and Triumphs: Dilemma of African Women is set in the West African country of Nigeria with its diverse cultures, religious orientations and several languages. The author brings to light the challenges, trials and triumphs of women in this socio-economic background and underscores the general view that female children are second-class in most families. This belief creates the bedrock for the lack of education and neglect. Some of these young women, Uche, Yemi and Ehi, are able to weather the storms and take their own destinies into their own hands to create their own happiness and standards of life in the face of staggering opposition.
