Hypatia 11 (1):175 - 201 (1996)
|Abstract||Judeo-Christian and Anglo-Saxon forms of marriage have injected patrilineal values and companionate expectations into the Akan matrilineal family structure.

In this essay, I investigate the ideological politics at play in this patrilinealization of Asante society|
