ABSTRACT

This study is titled “Women as Agents of Peace in Ahmed Yerima’s Little Drops and Aristophanes’ Lysistrata”. The study deals with how women overtime have come to the world’s rescue by ensuring that peace reigns supreme in the society. The researcher will approach this project by analysing Ahmed Yerima’s Little Drops and Aristophanes’ Lysisrata where female characters are used to bring about transformation in their different conflicting societies. The researcher will be using the literary (qualitative) method in analysing the project. At the end of this study, it is discovered that women basically are victims of war and are used as war booties. The gravity of their sufferings cannot be explained as they often times losses their husband, sons and even daughters in the conflicts. This is the reason women should be drafted into every decision making to ensure that every decision made is fair to both parties.
