American and Akan Women

Are American women in a better position (socially, economically, financially, personally, etc.) today than the Akan women were back then?  Explain your answer and illustrate with examples from the novel. Using your first essay and the novel as a backdrop for this topic, consider the challenges American women still face, and our national response to those challenges, such as the various movements we’ve experienced (Me Too Movement).  Also, consider the advantages and progress women have gained. Then, answer the question (Are American women in a better position (socially, economically, financially, personally, etc.) today than the Akan women were back then?) and list three reasons why you responded the way you did.  Support each of your three reasons with specific examples from the novel and three outside sources.:  Audience: American men and women, ages 25 – 50, with a
