Ama Ata Aidoo in ‘The Girl Who Can’ analyzes the struggle of African women in the course of finding a place for them in the society. She represents women to have crossed the traditional standard set for them and raise towards the intellectual one in order to combat the patriarchal patterns in the society. At the end it must be concluded that the role of women was deliberately subsided in the modern postcolonial social set up of Africa.
While male writers treated women as physical and sexual entities (e. g in Jagua Nana’) and the scapegoats of men’s doings (e. g in ‘Disgrace’), female writers portrayed women as struggling for the search of identity in the modern African society and for recognition of their true and independent self.
