Revenge of the Womens Studies Professor
In the play, Sota Ojo can confidently claim that he is on the right side of opportunities.
Years later, Sota is called home and handed a senatorial seat, literally on a platter of diamond. Aisosa Ojo, the home-based wife of Sota, remains faithful to the mother Africa symbolism: Great mother of her children, supportive, loyal and respectful wife of a chauvinistic, self-centred husband.
Fortunately, fate has an uncanny way of standing by the oppressed. Critical issues such as motherhood by experience, power, female resistance, diasporatic issues nationalism, sexism, empowerment, etc are all tackled in the play. In Sweet Revenge, Oronsaye-Salami offers a new perspective to womanhood, privileging her, reconfiguring her image and moving her from margin to centre.
