This thesis advances a new look and hopefully a new understanding
of a complex of issues often glossed 'the problem of women'. My
ethnographic focus is the ritual life of Aboriginal women in Central
Australia during the late 1970's, while my analysis raises the conceptual
issue of how we should evaluate and characterize women's role and status
in a sex segregated society.
