Women’s and Men’s Panels in Langa!

Attached are some photos from our bamboo grove classroom. Today, we had the privilege of meeting with community members to learn more about how gender manifests in everyday life in Langa.

Langa is a matrilineal society, so it was fascinating to hear about topics ranging from inheritance to education, from how male-female couples divide household chores to the role of religion in everyday life. The panelists also serve as homestay parents and siblings, so it was great to learn from them in a more formal setting now that our students haven’t gotten to know them for over a week.
