Esi Sekyi is the paradigm of the strong, independent woman. In addition to
having a job that pays more than her husband’s job, Esi owns the home in which
she lives. She has a master’s degree and genuinely enjoys her career. Advancing
within her profession is as much a priority for her as her family. Given the
traditional role that women were generally expected to play within the family,
Esi’s strong will and independent nature is unique. Esi comes to represent the
emergence of a new feminine identity—one that can compete equally with men in
terms of financial and personal security. At the same time that Esi may want the
freedom to pursue her own career and desires, she still very much wants to love
and be loved. What she sees in Ali is the potential to have both the freedom
that she desires and the love that she needs. Although Esi tries very hard to
live her life according to rational principles, she finds herself feeling
devastated and lonely because of her relationship with Ali.
