In a 1984 book, Claire C. Robertson argued that, before colonialism, age was a more important indicator of status and authority than gender in Ghana and in Africa generally. British colonialism imposed European-style male dominant notions upon more egalitarian local situations to the detriment of women generally, and gender became a defining characteristic that weakened women’s power and authority.

Subsequent research in Kenya convinced Robertson that she had overgeneralized about Africa. Before colonialism, gender was more salient in central Kenya than it was in Ghana, although age was still crucial in determining authority. In contrast with Ghana, where women had traded for hundreds of years and achieved legal majority (not unrelated phenomena), the evidence regarding central Kenya indicated that women were legal minors and were sometimes treated as male property, as were European women at that time. Factors like strong patrilinearity and patrilocality, as well as women’s inferior land rights and lesser involvement in trade, made women more dependent on men than was generally the case in Ghana. However, since age apparently remained the overriding principle of social organization in central Kenya, some senior women had much authority. Thus, Robertson revised her hypothesis somewhat, arguing that in determining authority in precolonial Africa age was a primary principle that superseded gender to varying degrees depending on the situation.


1. The primary purpose of the passage is to

(A) present evidence undermining a certain hypothesis
(B) describe a particular position and its subsequent modification
(C) discuss two contrasting viewpoints regarding a particular issue
(D) describe how a social phenomenon varied by region
(E) evaluate an assumption widely held by scholars



2. The passage indicates that Robertson’s research in Kenya caused her to change her mind regarding which of the following?

(A) Whether age was the prevailing principle of social organization in Kenya before colonialism
(B) Whether gender was the primary determinant of social authority in Africa generally before colonialism
(C) Whether it was only after colonialism that gender became a significant determinant of authority in Kenyan society
(D) Whether age was a crucial factor determining authority in Africa after colonialism
(E) Whether British colonialism imposed European-style male-dominant notions upon local situations in Ghana



3. The passage suggests that after conducting the research mentioned in highlighted text, but not before, Robertson would have agreed with which of the following about women’s status and authority in Ghana?

(A) Greater land rights and greater involvement in trade made women in precolonial Ghana less dependent on men than were European women at that time.
(B) Colonialism had a greater impact on the status and authority of Ghanaian women than on Kenyan women.
(C) Colonialism had less of an impact on the status and authority of Ghanaian women that it had on the status and authority of other African women.
(D) The relative independence of Ghanaian women prior to colonialism was unique in Africa.
(E) Before colonialism, the status and authority of Ghanaian women was similar to that of Kenyan women.



4. The author of the passage mentions the status of age as a principle of social organization in precolonial central Kenya in highlighted text most likely in order to

(A) indicate that women’s dependence on men in precolonial Kenya was not absolute
(B) contrast the situation of senior women to that of less senior women in precolonial Kenyan society
(C) differentiate between the status and authority of precolonial Kenyan women and that of precolonial Ghanaian women
(D) explain why age superseded gender to a greater extent in precolonial Kenya than it did elsewhere in Africa
(E) identify a factor that led Robertson to revise her hypothesis about precolonial Africa

In a 1984 book, Claire C. Robertson argued that, before colonialism, age was a more important indicator of status and authority than gender in Ghana and in Africa generally.
Robertson’s hypothesis in determining status and authority- Before colonialism
AGE > important indicator > GENDER (in Ghana and Africa in general)
British colonialism imposed European-style male-dominant notions upon more egalitarian local situations to the detriment of women generally, and gender became a defining characteristic that weakened women’s power and authority.
Colonialism- Gender became a defining characteristic.
Subsequent research in Kenya convinced Robertson that she had overgeneralized about Africa. (Q2)
Before colonialism, gender was more salient in central Kenya than it was in Ghana, although age was still crucial in determining authority. In contrast with Ghana, where women had traded for hundreds of years and achieved legal majority (not unrelated phenomena), the evidence regarding central Kenya indicated that women were legal minors and were sometimes treated as male property, as were European women at that time.
elaborate on the difference of gender domninance bwteeen ghana and kenya
Ghana- women traded and had legal majority
Kenya- women legal minors- treated as male property
Ghana was impacted to a higher degree as women in Kenya had low authority before colonialism too. (Q3)
Factors like strong patrilinearity and patrilocality, as well as women’s inferior land rights and lesser involvement in trade, made women more dependent on men than was generally the case in Ghana. However, since age apparently remained the overriding principle of social organization in central Kenya, some senior women had much authority. Thus, Robertson revised her hypothesis somewhat, arguing that in determining authority in precolonial Africa age was a primary principle that superseded gender to varying degrees depending on the situation.
Factors leading to women’s dependence on men
Thus she revised her hypothesis after identifying all the stated factors. (Q4)
1)R argued on something,
Subsequent research made R to believe something else,
based on that belief R modifies her hypothesis.
Hence, B is correct. As it clearly depicts that R took a position and subsequent research forced her to change her hypothesis.
2) The passage indicates that Robertson’s research in Kenya caused her to change her mind regarding which of the following?
Ans- caused her to changer her mind regarding over generalization about Africa. As seen through the passage, women in kenyan society were treated as legal minors and sometimes as male property. This shows the gender played a prominent role in determining authority in kenyan society even before colonialism.
Since the question mentioned "research in Kenya," we should zero in on the portion of the passage that discusses this research, lines 18-24:
"Subsequent research in Kenya convinced Robertson that she had overgeneralized about Africa. Before colonialism, gender was more salient in central Kenya than it was in Ghana."
Compare this with R's initial theory (note that this is conveniently located near the beginning of the passage, in lines 3-7): "Before colonialism, age was a more important indicator of status and authority than gender in Ghana and in Africa generally."
R has learned that even before colonialism, gender was more important in Kenya than she'd thought it was in Africa generally. This leads us straight to C.
3)The passage suggests that after conducting the research mentioned in the highlighted text, but not before, Robertson would have agreed with which of the following about women’s status and authority in Ghana?
Ans- After conducting the research she would have agreed that she over generalized and gender had played different role in ghana and kenya. Women in Ghana were more independent as compared to women in other African countries (see Kenya), so colonialism affected their lives the most, since they went from independent to legal minors. " "In contrast with Ghana, where women had traded for hundreds of years and achieved legal majority (not unrelated phenomena), the evidence regarding central Kenya indicated that women were legal minors". Hence B.
4)The author of the passage mentions the status of age as a principle of social organization in precolonial central Kenya in the highlighted text most likely in order to
Ans- “Thus” she revised her hypothesis after identifying all the stated factors. (Last line). Hence E.

Very Nice passage JarvisR.

Thank you+ Kudos.

I got two correct. I understood the reason for getting the other two wrong.

The key thing with this passage is, one has to draw a line between what happened before colonialism and after colonialism. This will make the picture clear. This way we can get at least 3 questions correct.

Thanks again JarvisR.

Any ideas why E is correct ? I would agree that when taking the whole sentence that one could say that the importance of gender in kenya was one of the reasons for her revision. But the question only asks why the author used "age". And the status of age was her former hypothesis, hence not a factor to change her theory

Found different OA on beatthegmat. The answer for question 6 is not E, it is A. That makes considerably more sense since even though gender was important for the people of Kenya - Age helped the women not to be completely subordinated to men, therefore it was not absolute --> A

it seems that the stem of question 4 has some problem.
it should be "age " in the end of passage, not "age" at 24-26 lines.

very hard questions though the passage is not hard to understand

All correct
Time 6 min
Question 3 Was tough so its worth discussion .

The passage suggests that after conducting the research mentioned in line 18, but not before, Robertson would have agreed with which of the following about women’s status and authority in Ghana?


A. Greater land rights and greater involvement in trade made women in precolonial Ghana less dependent on men than were European women at that time.
B. Colonialism had a greater impact on the status and authority of Ghanaian women than on Kenyan women.
C. Colonialism had less of an impact on the status and authority of Ghanaian women that it had on the status and authority of other African women.
D. The relative independence of Ghanaian women prior to colonialism was unique in Africa.
E. Before colonialism, the status and authority of Ghanaian women was similar to that of Kenyan women.

The question asks us to infer what the author would have agreed on after the colonisation of Ghana.Read the following lines from the passage and the answer becomes apparent
Subsequent research in
Kenya convinced Robertson
(20)
that she had overgeneralized
about Africa. Before colonialism,
gender was more salient
in central Kenya than
it was in Ghana, although age
(25)
was still crucial in determining
authority. In contrast with
Ghana, where women had
traded for hundreds of years
and achieved legal majority
(30)
(not unrelated phenomena),
the evidence regarding
central Kenya indicated
that women were legal minors
and were sometimes treated

(35)
as male property, as were

European women at that time.

asdfghjklasdfghj I was wondering the same, I thought age was given more importance even before colonialism. I chose A because senior women had more authority in some situations, and hence this indicated that dependence of women on men was not absolute. Where am I going wrong?

Can someone please clarify this? GMATNinja
