'This Matter of Women is Getting Very Bad'

Gender, Development and Politics in Colonial Lesotho

By Marc Epprecht

Exploring the historiography of the four decades prior to Lesotho's independence in 1966, this book highlights neglected Basotho women's voices, including those of nuns, politicians, chiefs, prostitutes, runaways and homemakers, thereby providing a challenge to the models of development, politics and community that have been predominant in Lesotho in the modern era.
