She also emphasizes that we should not lose sight of the fact that Africa is a collective: [B]eing conquered by the colonizing powers; being culturally and materially subjected to a nineteenth-century European racial hierarchy and its gender politics; being indoctrinated into all-male European administrative systems, and the insidious paternalism of the new religious and educational systems … has persistently affected all aspects of social, cultural, political, and economic life in postcolonial African states (Mama, 1998: 47).
