Working with Gender: Wage Labor and Social Change in Southwestern Nigeria (Book)
Title: Working with Gender: Wage Labor and Social Change in Southwestern Nigeria
Author: Lisa A. Lindsay
Abstract: Lindsay argues that wage labor became gendered as male because of transformations in the labor process, along with the concrete goals and values of individual Nigerian men and women, which were often influenced by indigenous and imported ideas about modernization. This book provides a view of modernization from a Nigerian, working-class perspective. It points to the tensions and engagement between the practical strategies and ideological assumptions of various colonial administrators and African workers.
