Title

Why boys don't trust their girl friends

Subject

Nigerian literature (English)

Description

In many ways this pamphlet is a continuation of the pamphlet 'Beware of women'. Although it does not declare war on African women, an Asian woman graces the cover. It advises boys not to trust their girlfriends because of their "habit of duping, bluffing and asking for much gifts from the boys," (pg.2). It declares that "it is a pamphlet that everybody should read for information, advice, wisdom and mental entertainment," (pg.2).

Despite this, it may be important to note that current Western relationship advice within popular culture (Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus) uses axioms similar to Njoku's "Men are monkeys and women are baboons," (pg.32).
