Mariama Bâ’s So Long a Letter: A new path to women empowerment
This article addresses the woman question under the sway of patriarchal order in Mariama Bâ’s So Long a Letter. The novelty of the work resides in its aim to provide an insightful overview of restrictive traditional conventions that work together with the fashionable dharma and principles at the same time to subdue and alienate woman who is stripped of her voice and identity. The paper shows that, contrarily to most pioneers of African women writers whose portrayal of the woman subject spins around her victimization, per se, Bâ’s novel under study paves the way for the resistant woman whose resilience sows the seeds of rampant African feminism that will surely bear out the true voice that will retrieve the African woman her dignity and privileged status for a more balanced-world.
