The political maturity of the African masses may to some extent be traced to economic and social patterns of traditional times. Under communalism, for example, all land and means of production belonged to the community, there was people's ownership and labor was the need and habit of all. Humanity lived in communalism for at least 90 per cent of the time it has been on earth. During communalism women played a leading role in the society. There was a division of labor where the men hunted and women gathered in order to provide food for the collective (Africa Women Forum).
