Is Women’s Participation in Musical Activities and Performances a Reflection of Gender and Gender Roles in Africa? (The Zambian Case)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Female participation in issues of governance and decision-making has been a global call over the years. However, this call is limited and restricted more to political and economical participation than to cultural and social issues especially in Africa. Gender is widely used to imply gender roles and identity of males and females. In most African countries and specifically in Zambia, roles are generally perceived to be either purely masculine or otherwise. Women’s participation in music is one such an example where certain activities and performances are particularly restricted to one gender or the other. This study therefore will seek to explore the participation of women in musical activities and performances in Zambia, and to validate to what extent this participation is a reflection of gender roles and identity.
