Abstract

Patriarchy; that slanted aspect of culture, which accords the males superiority over the females, virtually since creation, continues to rear its ugly head in literary creativity despite the on-going global socio-cultural re-orientation concerning gender imbalance. Employing the Marxist and Womanist theories, this paper attempts to critically examine how women are involved and recognized in achieving the ideals sought for in Yorùbá written protest plays.
