TITLE: The Masai women. [videorecording] the Masai of Kenya.
PUBLISHED: Granada Television International ; 1974.
DESCRIPTION: 1 videodisc : sd., col. , 4 3/4 in.
NOTES: Produced and directed by Chris Curling; Art direction, Joan Pelosi.
NOTES: The Masai are animal herders in the East African Riff Valley of Kenya and Tanzania. They are proud of not growing crops and devote themselves to their cattle. But only the men have rights to these cattle, and women are wholly dependent. A barren woman is something bad to the Masai. There's nothing she can do. She looks after her husband's animals, but when he dies, she'll be mistreated. The sons of his other wives will tell her to go away so they can take her cows, she has no position. With the astonishingly candid Nolpiyaya as guide, MASAI WOMEN explores what it means to be a woman from childhood, to taunted, weeping new pride, to old age in his completely male dominated society.
