Things Fall Apart

In what ways is Okonkwo’s daughter, Ezinma, like him? What will be her role in Ibo society and what difficulties might she face?

Ezinma is Okonkwo’s favourite child. She is brave, loyal and she reminds Okonkwo of Ekwefi when she was the village beauty. Okonkwo wishes his son Nwoye had these same qualities. She can be stubborn like her father which might spell trouble because Igbo women are, for the most part, meant to be subservient.
