Description: Challenging the portrayal of sexual inequality as a universal condition, Lepowsky presents a vivid account of Vanatinai, a matrilineal society in New Guinea.
Contradticting scholars who consider sexual inequality a universal condition, "Fruit of the Motherland" reveals an exceptional society in which women have equivalent access to power and prestige and significant control over the means of production.
Lepowsky presents an ethnography of Vanatinai, a matrilineal, decentralized society in New Guinea where there is no ideology of male dominance and women and men are considered fundamentally equal. tracing the life cycle of islanders of both sexes, she examines the role of gender in thye Vanatinai's: social life and history, religious philosophy and worldview, practice of ceremonial exchange and ritual.
In addition, "Fruit of the Motherland" includes useful cross-cultural analysis of gender roles, ideologies, and power.
