In this latest book by the award-winning author of the hugely influential Male Daughters, Female Husbands, Ifi Amadiume propels gender relations beyond dichotomies and discriminations, and towards a power-sharing argument in discourse, contestation and resistance.

Representing the culmination of over 40 years of ground-breaking work on notions of matriarchy at the intersection of the Igbo-African universe and the Western capitalist reality, Amadiume sets forth a blueprint for a bold new matriarchitarianism, critiquing all forms of social injustice with a shared matriarchal-relational humanism.

In each chapter of the book, Amadiume applies these principles to a dazzling array of subjects: from religious leadership, kinship and family relations, to sexuality, creative writing and matters of conscience in race, class and gender. African Possibilities explodes our notions of matriarchy into original and compelling arguments, and offers a radical alternative approach to the world’s entrenched injustices.



Ifi Amadiume is a tenured full Professor at Dartmouth College, USA, where she has taught both in the Department of Religion and the African and African American Studies Program. She has taught courses cross-listed in many departments and programs such as Women and Gender Studies Program, and the Anthropology Department. She is also a writer and an award-winning poet of many books. Amadiume is the author of several books and articles, including the influential Male Daughters, Female Husbands (Zed Books, 1988, new edition 2015) that won the Choice Outstanding Academic Book of the Year award in 1989 and one of Africa’s Best 100 Books of the 20th century award.
