The play suggest that all the female of the village,"ijinile" are woman who are mostly willing to marry a man who is able to pay the bride price and also the play tells me that the women are very optimistic to when it come to child rearing and looking after they husband.

The play suggest that woman are somewhat seen as inferior to men as they are only used to recruit new wives , have children and to take care of their husbands. The women are also traditional as it reguards to marriage for example the bride price.
