Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject Sociology - Gender Studies, , language: English, abstract: The research's concern here is on women oppression in the Igbo society and with its impact on the societal destruction. When carrying the research, the forms of women oppression were investigated in this Achebe's Things Fall Apart whereby inequality, inheritance deprivation for female gender, women beating and other abuses against femininity were mainly based on in this research to investigate the reasons of Igbo societal destruction. Okonkwo who ruled his wives and children with a heavy hand was both a woman hater and oppressor. Hence, this behavior and belief have to be searched on for the purpose of finding out how it might lead his society to get destroyed. This research bears the following objectives: To identify the forms of oppression in Things Fall Apart, to examine in which ways the society gets destroyed due to women oppression and to emphasize what women can do so as to get equal chances to their counterparts. Referring to the objectives mentioned above, the researcher wanted to answer these questions: the first question was how has the Igbo society demonstrated the forms of women oppression in 'Things Fall Apart?' The forms of oppression were based on women beating, deprivation of inheritance for female gender and different abuse against women. The second one is, where did the society get destroyed in the Igbo society in 'Things Fall Apart?' It is identified that women role is limited to households and children bearing not in economic and political whereby the women are not able to possess anything like men. The third is how the women oppression contributed to the societal destruction? The protagonist of Things Fall Apart, Okonkwo, a woman hater and oppressor led his society to destruction whereby his son Nwoye abused by him to behave like women became one of the people who got converted into Christianity unlike traditional and other hatred and violence against the femininity contributed much to the society destruction. The findings identified that the Igbo society practiced different women oppression such as inequality, lack of inheritance for girls' children, and women beating. It was also noticed here that women were socially and economically undermined by men through their patriarchal culture and society. The violence against the femininity pushed Okonkwo to hung himself so that he could not be called a weak or woman for handing himself in white men's hands after killing the white man messenger.

I am Jean Damascene Ngendahayo from Rwanda and i was born on June 1, 1981. I did all primary and secondary studies and I continued my university education in former Kigali Institute of Education whereby I got a Diploma in French and English with education from 2008 to 2010. After that, i continued hitting books at INES/ RUHENGERI in 2011 to 2013 where I obtained a Bachelor's honours degree of arts in French and English with education with second class upper division. When I got this degree, I was working as an English School Based Mentor in Rwanda Education Board in Bugesera district where i worked with the school administration and parents, teachers and students in terms of raising the equality of education in Rwanda through reading different stories and recounting them verbally in a public or at home. By this sensitization, parents took the first step to encourage their children to read and recount some stories so as to help grow very well by memorizing the language of English and Kinyarwanda.
