By Professor Ifi Amadiume. Without dogma, without new principles, it refuses to conform and instead demands insurrection of thought. It must be ruthless, unafraid of both its results and the powers it may come into conflict with. Critique takes the world, our world, as its object, so that we may develop new ways of making it.

So much is recognizable and appealing, but it's obvious that things were different then. I first encountered the book as a graduate student within a few years of its publication, and as I began teaching African history sometime later it made regular appearances on my syllabi. Fresh and bold, Male Daughters, Female Husbands offered revelations about gender and African women's history to both Africanist scholars and Western feminists. These days, as some of those insights have become almost commonplace, it is worth celebrating their emergence and noting their lasting influence. At the same time, it's also hard not to see Male Daughters, Female Husbands as a product of its era, a time when feminist gender analysis burst forth with all its promise and, from today's vantage point, limitations. Grounded in the history and contemporary positions of women in Amadiume's hometown of Nnobi in southeastern Nigeria, Male Daughters, Female Husbands appealed to me most for its insistent distinction between sex and gender. Though precolonial Nnobi society was starkly divided by sex, its gender system was more flexible, allowing wealthy women to acquire wives and therefore become "husbands" and some daughters to be conceptualized as male in order to inherit the position of household head from their fathers.
