LE VODOU AU FÉMININ : MYTHES ET RÉALITÉS DE LA FEMME EN AFRIQUE DE L’OUEST

LE VODOU AU FÉMININ : MYTHES ET RÉALITÉS DE LA FEMME EN AFRIQUE DE L’OUEST

Jusqu’au 30 octobre 2018

In the ancient Yorubaland, Odu, a female divinity, was in charge of the power of the bird and of the physical world. She is then considered as the forever mother. Olodumare, the supreme god, considered that she misused her powers and took them away from her to give them to her male companion. Odu was dismissed. This allegory of transfer of power in Yoruba tradition has been transmitted into Voodoo culture and has directly shaped the perception of women and their role.
