This scholarly work is situated in concrete research through personal interviews with Igbo African women living in the United States.

It focuses on the subtle biblical and cultural myths by which women are manipulated to accept their own oppression, to cooperate in maintaining it, and to resist their liberation. The work identifies these cultural and religious myths which elude the attention of many advocates of womens cause. It reconstructs these paradigms in the light of the inclusive and egalitarian ethos of the early Jesus movement and pre-colonial Igbo African society as resources for womens empowerment today. In the light of her findings, the author makes some very strong proposals, which have high potentials for overcoming the pervasive and extensive negative effects of womens cultural subordination worldwide.
