African women of antiquity were legendary for their beauty and power. Throughout African History, there were fearless Women who stood up and fought for their rights and those of their people. There were Women in power in many African societies.
African women could manage, own and sell private property, land, portable goods, servants, livestock and money. They could resolve legal settlements and could conclude any kind of legal settlement. African women could appear as a contracting partner in a marriage contract or a divorce contract; and, they could execute testaments.
Matriarchal Warrior tribes and matrilineal tribal descent are a continuing theme in African history and even up till modern times.
