African Encounters with Domesticity

were raised to the status of women's institutes when the members demonstrated that they were capable of managing their own affairs.

After 1962 the Native Reserves were referred to as Tribal Trust Lands (ITL).

Wedza was originally a subdistrict of Marandellas. During land reorganization in 1964, it became a district.
10.
Figures on labor migration were not kept by district authorities during this time period. Several studies of African households conducted after independence yield differing figures. In a 1982 study Diane Callear found that 41 percent of the households surveyed had the male head of household working away and remitting income. In a 1985 study for Agritex Kate Truscott found that just over half the men in reporting households considered themselves migrating workers. However, she points out that a random sample carried out in 1984 showed a rate of 28 percent. In my own sample 63 percent of the women who were married prior to 1976 had husbands working away from home ( 1985).
11.
Interviews were conducted with small groups of 3 to 10 women in 15 villages in Wedza district. Since respondents were promised anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the research topic, they are referred to here by date only. In cases where more than one interview took place in one day separate interviews are designated with lower case letters.
