ABSTRACT

This research work examined feminism in Buchi Emecheta’s Second Class Citizen and Flora Nwapa’s Efuru. The study showed that feminism is an ideology that provided a platform for equality between men and women in the society.

It is also a political movement towards the eradication of cultural and men’s infliction to the women. However, as feminist writers, Emecheta and Nwapa portray these cultural issues affecting their fellow women in African society like; domestic violence, gender discrimination, oppression, subjugation, sexual abuse, humiliation and patriarchal domination by their male counterparts.

Therefore, as feminist writers, their writings exposed these issues, for the betterment of the society and unity. From the findings, the researcher recommends that feminism as a socio-political movement that geared towards the recognition of the potentials of women as human beings. The women should be given equal opportunities with their male counterpart in various areas of human activities and eradicate the issue of patriarchal domination by the men because from creation time, down to the message in the Holy Bible, husbands should love their wives and treat them with care, while the same source admonished women to submit to their husbands in all manners.

 

CONCLUSION

This research work has been able to examine how Buchi Emecheta and Flora Nwapa who with their feminist ideologies in African literature have ascertained the need to give women room to display their given talents. They have done this through writing. Specifically, their works emphasized the movement of women for emancipation in the male dominated and patriarchal societies like Africa.

For instance, Emecheta’s focus is on the emancipation and freedom of women from the shackles of men in the society. The desire to see the women as having the same right as male counterparts and also possessing a strong will to survive and proffer solution to problems affecting their societies is also part of the focus of Emecheta’s writings.

 

On the other hand, Flora Nwapa as one of the best African female writers writes on how some African men maltreat their wives due to infertility and childlessness in their marital homes. In One is Enough for instance, Amaka had problems with her husband and her mother in-law because of her childlessness and consequently makes her to leaves her son’s matrimonial home for Lagos.

It is therefore clear that, these feminist writers write to correct these issues of men’s domination and how they treat their wives shabbily.

Nwapa in all her novels talks about childlessness in women and how these women are oppressed and dehumanized due to childlessness.

Emecheta writes about how to resist the male dominance by revealing the male characters of irresponsible husbands, exploitative in-laws, women oppression and unnecessary dominance of the husband over his wife and all other sexist issues relevant to men’s world.
