Q.No: 13 Polygamy in Africa has been a popular topic of social research over the past half century; it has been analyzed by many distinguished minds and in various well published works. In 1961, when Remi Clignet published his book 'Many Wives , Many Powers', he was not alone in his view that in Africa co-wives may be perceived as direct and indirect sources of incresed income and prestige.

By the 1970's, such arguments had become crystallized and popular. Many other African scholars who wrote on the subject became the new champions of this philosophy. For example, in 1983, Jhon Mbiti proclaimed that polygamy is an accepted and respectable institution sowing many useful social purpose. Similarly, G.K. Nukunya, in his paper "Polygamy as a symbol of status", reiterated Mbiti's  idea that a plurality of wives is a legitimate sign of affluence and power in the African society. The colonial missionary voice, however, provided consistent opposition to polygamy invoking the authority of the Bible, missionaries argued that the practice was unethical and destructive of family life, and they propagated the view that Africans had to be coerced into abiding by the monogamous view ofmarriage favoured by western culture. In some instances, missionaries even dietated immediate divorce for newly converted men who had already entered into polygamous marriages. Unfortunately, neither the missionary voice nor the scholarly voice considered the views of African women important. Although there was some awareness that women regarded polygamy as both a curse and a blessing, the distanced, impartial, scientific, perspective of an outside observer predominated both at the pulpit and in scholarly writings.

Contemporary research in the social sciences has begun to focus on the protagonist's voice in the study of culture, recognizing that the views and experiences of those who take part in a given reality ought receive close examination. This privileging of the protagonist seems appropriate, particularly given that women in Africa have often used literacy productions to comment on marriage, family and gender relations.

Which of the following statements is true ?

A Western Culture opposed the polygamous view of marriage
B Scholarly voice considered the views of African women important
C African women considered polygamy as a curse only
D Social research on polygamy has been conducted for over a century.
ANS (A)
