For this assignment, you need to carefully read Greene 1998. In your own words
For this assignment, you need to carefully read Greene 1998. In your own words (so *no* direct quotes), explain how bridewealth, cross-cousin marriage, and traditional woman- marriage work in the Lovedu system of social relations. How does bridewealth (typically cattle) and inheritance work in this system? What is wife inheritance (pp. 406-407) and how does it relate to the political status of female husbands? What kinds of social rights, roles, and obligations do female husbands (pp. 405 and 411, but also in other sections) and their wives (p. 410) have? What is a woman-husband called by her wife and her wife's children? What is a Lovedu rainmaker queen, and what are the roles and statuses of her vatanoni and motanoni wives? Be careful to only speak about the Lovedu and not confuse them with the Dahome, Igbo, or other ethnic groups. You may simply cite this source as (Greene 1998). No references cited bibliography required for this assignment. Two to three pages, typed (double-spaced).
