Women are Different

"Women are Different" interweaves the stories of Rose, Agnes, Dora and Comfort — a group of Nigerian women who stay together from their schooldays through the tribulations of their adult lives. The book reveals a universality to the female characters’ stories and their struggles for financial independence and a rewarding career, combined with the need to bring up a family often without a man. By setting their lives against the background of a developing Nigeria —from colonial times through the Nigerian Civil War to present day— Flora Nwapa once again demonstrates her compassionate insight to the stories of women, and has created a book one will never forget.
