Next evening talk
Chris Knight chooses another myth, this time from Amazonia, to illustrate the effects of male dominance and patrilocal residence on women's lives. In this particular case, the myth conceptualises the damage done through the image of a woman cut in two, her legs and body sinking down to earth while her upper half flies into the sky.
