oa Alternation - Lexical reinforcement and maintenance of gender stereotypes in isiZulu

Volume 11, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1023-1757



In his book, The Cry of Winnie Mandela where Njabulo Ndebele uses fiction to explore the experiences of Black South African women, he writes: The desire to exert total control is related to the most primal male fear: uncertainty whether the child his wife gives birth to is really his.

So, a plethora of controls may have to be put in place (2003:3-4).
