Ojibwa Woman

Ojibwa Woman


In the 1930s, young anthropologist Ruth Landes crafted this startlingly intimate glimpse into the lives of Ojibwa women, a richly textured ethnography widel recognized as a classical study of gender relations in a native society. By collaborating closely with Maggie Wilson, a woman of Scots-Cree descent who grew up among the Ojibwas, Landes was able to explore the complexity of Ojibwa women's experiences in compelling and often uncompromising detail. 


Sexuality and violence, marital rights and responsibilities, and constraints and opportunities afforded by traditional and modern aspects of Ojibwa cultre are all thoroughly and thoughtfully examined in this study.
