The Mudjadji dynasty : the principles of female leadership in African cosmology.

The primary aim of the study was to investigate the principles of female leadership in southern Africa, with special reference to the Mudjadji cosmology.  The process involved tracing the origins of these principles back to Ancient Ethiopia - more specifically to the provinces of Napata and Meroe in the Sudan - and even further, to show that these principles are directly linked to the African cosmology and the goddess Mwari
