La isla donde las mujeres mandan Según afirma en su blog la antropóloga Anna Boye, “en esta comunidad bijagó de Orango Grande cada sexo tiene funciones diferentes, las mujeres siguen la tradición de sus antepasados y organizan el trabajo, la gestión de la economía y la ley, pero con un sistema de valores que aprecia al hombre por su sensibilidad y delicadeza y lo valora por las labores que realiza como son el barbecho de los campos, la caza y la pesca.
