Description - Gender Rituals by Nancy C. Lutkehaus
This volume draws together ethnographies of female initiation rites in in Melanesia which require anthropologists to rethink their analysis of initiations and their perceptions of gender. The contributors argue that female initiation rites express more than cultural notions of femininity, narrow definitions of reproduction, or coming of age rituals - instead they play an important role in other life cycle rituals and in the political and economic organisation of society.
