A Transformative Depiction of the Dilemmas of Women by Selected Northern Sotho Poets

Ramohlale MI, Chauke OR, Mphoto Mogoboya.

Abstract
The subject of women disenfranchisement has not been adequately addressed in Northern Sotho poetry though it is a generally common phenomenon in indigenous African literature at large. For centuries, indigenous African literature has been a weapon of women disempowerment, under the veneer of African cultural identity. Women were not given a voice in this form of literary expression. The thrust of this study is, therefore, to delineate the objectification of African women by the following selected Northern Sotho poets: Matsepe, Tseke, Puleng and Kgobe. It is a qualitative study which is undergirded by Cultural Transformative Model which strives to emancipate women from cultural stereotypes which impede them from reaching their full potential in this life. The poets were purposively sampled because of their relevance to the study, and then explored by adopting thematic textual analysis. This study recommends that for humanity to reach their full potential, gender diversity and inclusivity should be prioritised. Women should, on merit, be embraced in the plans of the nation.

Key words: women, Cultural Transformation Model, poets, disempowerment. depiction, gender diversity
