Presentation of Gender and Sexuality in Wole Soyinka’s the Lion and the Jewel and the Trials of Brother Jero

By Ozioko Agatha Ogochukwu

Summary

women have not been given the adequate respect they deserve. Sophocles once said that “silence gives the proper grace to women.” Men were often perceived as the dominant sex; women were just asked to perform in the kitchen, and please their spouse. According to feminist criticism, the root of the prejudice against women have long been embedded in western culture. The female feminist Virginia Woolf wrote “A room of one’s own,” in which she declares that men have treated women as inferiors. She states that society believes that women are inferior to men; men controls the income, while women just seat at home and this is exactly the case in The Lion and the Jewel and The Trials of Brother Jero.
