THE ISLAMIC POSITION
Department of French, University of Ado-Ekiti, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State,
The issue of womanhood remains a vital field that has continuously attracted the attention of researchers in various fields especially feminists. Writers of West African origin have often exposed the difficulties facing women in the sub-region. Women in almost all societies of the world have been treated as second-class citizens, placing them at the bottom of the family hierarchy. This paper investigates the status of women in West African literature in order to make comparison with the status of women as described by the Holy Qur’aan.
