Western culture has always aimed to penetrate across other cultures and establish its supremacy and influence. In Ghana too, the West showed its baleful influence with consumerism and cultural imperialism. She questions the reasons behind the deplorable situation of women in the country of Ghana. The minute details and events which get conversed in the short stories testify to the problems of the people and the hapless situation of the society.
The way the author establishes these facts through her literary excellence hits the avid reader and makes him think about these issues of the society and politics. She exposes the evil face of governance and the ill-fate of the common people.
