THE TRUE-LIFE STORY OF ONE WOMAN'S STRUGGLE TO OVERCOME THE PERILS OF PATRIARCHY, INTERWOVEN WITH A CRITICAL LOOK AT SOCIETY'S ATTITUDE TOWARDS WOMEN AND WOMEN'S RIGHTS.



Wasilat Amoke grew up in Nigeria in the 1950s at a time when the prevailing culture normalised misogyny and gender-based abuse. Poor attitudes towards women and girls consigned her to a life of severe hardship. Her hopes for escaping misery rested on her children, whom she raised within a society that stood aloof yet would have condemned her had she failed.


Steel Woman serves as a powerful lens through which many of today's injustices are examined. It challenges the normalisation of female suffering and will hopefully inspire you to join the fight for gender justice.
