Texte du rabat

Anne Griffiths went to Botswana to establish a university course in family law. After careful observation, Griffiths discovered that both colonial common law and local customary law is based on power and gender relations that heavily favor males. Griffith shows how law and custom are inseparable, and African women's access to law is determined by social relations over which they have little control. Photos. Maps. Drawings. 320 pp.



Résumé
A comparison between the traditional customary legal system and the colonial common law of courts and magistrates in Botswana. This study shows how the structure of both legal institutions is based on power and gender relations which heavily favour males, and which block women's access to law.
