Challenging Western Views Of Polygamy And Female Circumcision

Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
Single and in her early thirties, educator Dionne Braham has become disenchanted with the romantic ideal of the perfect mate-actually, with the idea of finding any mate in her familiar London milieu. But she experiences an even greater paradigm-shift when she travels to Tanzania to live with and learn from a Maasai family for a month. This program documents her transformative journey and the challenges it entails. Tasked with everything from milking cows to plastering huts with dung, Dionne grapples with troubling subjects like polygamy, female circumcision, and the virtual powerlessness of women in Maasai society-all while struggling to refrain from imposing Western views and morals.
