    INTRODUCTION:
    Accept a plausible and convincing introduction. (2 Marks) Example….

    For a long time, women have fought to emancipate themselves from the yolks of men domination. However, these gains have been negated by the same women who appear to fight each other instead of supporting one another. This is best illustrated in H.R. Ole Kulet’s Blossoms of the Savannah where Mama Milanoi, Yeiyo Botor, Yeieo Kiti, the Enkaiboni, the three Esoit women and the Enkamuratani propagate the culture of female circumcision and early marriages.

    CONTENT/BODY
    (12 Marks)
    Expect four points. Mark: 3,3,3,3
    1. Mama Milanoi betrays her daughters by not standing up for them at their hour of need.
    2. Women perform FGM and it is girls who suffer for it.
    3. Women like Mama Milanoi and Uncle Simiren’s wives have accepted their inferior status
    4. Olarinkoi’s mother – the Enkaiboni, would like to get Resian circumcised before being married to her son , without her consent.
    5. It is women who conspire to lure Taiyo from her home to Esoit to carry out her forced marriage.
    6. When Mama Milanoi seeks Uncle Simiren’s wives over Oloisudori’s quest to marry Resian, they dismiss her and her husband as the proverbial hyena that straddled two parallel paths
    7. When Resian wonders why women are raised just to please men, Mama Milanoi rebukes her while Yeiyo Botorr accuses her of disrespect.

      CONCLUSION
      Accept a plausible conclusion. (2 Marks) Example
