Aboriginal Woman Sacred and Profane by Phyllis M. Kaberry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Providing remarkable insights into Australian Aboriginal society through the vantage point of women, Aboriginal Women illustrates the importance of the study of gender in anthropology. Phyllis Kaberry was the first anthropologist to examine and understand the fullness of aboriginal women's lives, which had hitherto been classified as restricted and uninvolved with religious practice. She portrayed the Aboriginal woman in a realistic light, as a complex social personality with her own prerogatives, duties, problems, beliefs, rituals and points of view. In her new preface, Sandy Toussaint looks at how Aboriginal Women came to be written, the book's original context and its influence on the study of gender in anthropology.
