Being a Black Woman in the Post Colonial Africa - A Case Study of African Women Fiction Writers ? Flora Nwapa (1931-1993) and Dr Buchi Emecheta (1944 - 2017)

Golda Meir Shalini Sindala


Abstract: This research will help us to comprehend the Post Colonial African culture and society from a female point of view. This study will also help us to discover the aspirations of African women with the help of literature reviews and panel surveys. I personally feel that in the academics, African womens writing should be included in the syllabus under the genre Feminism in the Indian Universities. And I hope this research will be an implication for future research scholars. It examines the self-discovery of the protagonists of the novels in the colonial and post-colonial context. It is utilized to form a series of a modern, self-determined girl child who transcends societal limitations and constraints, and also provides historical background, contextualizes the study, and presents the framework of the novel. This research also reveals how the rigidity of gender norms restricts the protagonists to conformity, sacrificing the self to facilitate reintegration into society. Focuses on the post-colonial context, where the conflicts between modern and traditional social structures are seen as the main determining factors in the developmental process. It deals with the developmental process within the African community, a group that has very complex, of identity issues because of its colonial influence, summarizing the arguments and conclusion, written by authors of the novels.
