Warm greetings from Dar es Salaam. Already there are two proposals to research on how women have been depicted in Kiswahili literary genres. The proverbs have inspired a good number of students. Congratulations!

Dear Professor Mineke Schipper, May I extend my congratulations on the new website www.womeninproverbsworldwide.com. I will certainly make access to this site very often from now on.

I had been looking for work that weaved the stands of text, image, folk perspectives and soulful empowerment together…..which you do so incredibly well. So thank you for your work, it has helped me out enormously. Would you mind at some stage if I contacted you for discussion on similar themes?

Quelle idée splendide d’avoir mis au point ce site des « femmes en proverbes » avec un corpus aussi riche et des liens si astucieux. Vraiment bravo ! Je vais en parler à mes collègues du LLACAN à notre prochaine rencontre ainsi qu’aux doctorants du labo. Plusieurs travaillent sur le proverbe.

Dear Prof Schipper, I’m writing this email to thank you for your wonderful research, which inspired me so much during the completion of my thesis. Your work has given me many ideas and encouraged me to carry on criticizing sexual biases in Kazakh traditional literature.
