Looks at how France colonized and claimed an area of Africa 14 times its own size, between 1830 and 1910 – which was subsequently split into French West Africa and French Equatorial Africa. Has a deep insight into the forming and investigation of the areas by one woman officer from the French West African Education Department. Concludes that Savineau’s study is a documentary of quite extraordinary value in the study of “other” races over 13,000 kilometres, reporting on “The condition of the African Woman and the Family”, before the Second World War.
