This was a Patriarchal society. Men were expected to provide for and protect the family. In return, women were expected to be subservient in every way. Men with higher status, like Okonkwo, had more than one wife. Men made the major decisions for both the family and the community. They bought and traded land, brokered marriages and even declared war on other communities.
