Diane  | 2051 comments Education is viewed as something reserved for males, not females. It was a waste to educate females since the benefit would go to the in-laws family. Nhamo's education was viewed as a way to ultimately deliver the family from their poverty. The fact that Mainguru is educated puts a divide between her and other women of her family.
