Abstract

This article examines the Mobutist politics of women's emancipation, its consequences through three significant moments that reveal the growing degradation of women's issues, and the female as well as the male critics that have been denouncing Mobutist politics. The men, contrary to the women, dare to ask the question in terms of male domination. However, both the female and male discourse are conservative vis-à-vis the image of woman and avoid the question of order etablished by the men in the Zairian society. Thus, the critics are simply contesting women's sexual exploitation under Mobutu's regime without questioning the unequal gender relations in the Zairian society.
