Abstract: The author examines what some specific forms of Somali oral literature reveal about the roles and experiences of Somali women in their society. The discussion pertains primarily to northern Somali culture.
Haweeneyda qoraaga ahi waxay falanqaynaysaa qaabab gaar ah oo ka mid ah suugaanta Soomaaliyeed ee aan qornayn oo ku saabsan dowrka iyo khibradda ay haweenku ku leeyihiin bulshada dhaxdeeda. Waxayna si gaar ah uga hadlaysaa dhaqanka Soomaalida Woqooyi.
L'autrice esamina cosa rivelano alcune forme specifiche di letteratura orale somala sui ruoli e le esperienze delle donne in seno alla società. La discussione si riferisce per lo più alla cultura della Somalia settentrionale.
