The Olinka beloeve that women should not be educated, and that a woman, any woman, doesn't have an identity until she's married and becomes linked with her husband and future children. The viewpoint of American women is not gracefully accepted by the Olinka men, but the women warm to it over time. They begin to understand the freedom a woman enjoys in being able to move freely and the power she gains through education. This is a completely accurate view of the time, and in many African cultures is still applicable even today.
