Question 1

Comment  on the fate of Childless women in Brenhoma Society.


The following points, fully developed, were expected from candidates:

  • Barren women are doomed to loneliness in old age.
  • Barren women are treated with contempt and scorn.
  • In Brenhoma, a barren woman is likened to a man.
  • Brenhoma is a matrilined society, therefore, mothers of the barren also suffer the ripple effect of their daughter’s fate.

Most of the candidates attempted the question and their performance was good.
