The Role of Women in 19th Century Mount Lebanon

Nada Awar

Abstract


Nineteenth Century Mount Lebanon consisted of an agricultural village society. Communication between the villages was difficult because connecting roads were very narrow. unpaved and in primitive condition. Donkeys were the popular means of transportation. The donkey driver. Mkari, acted as a means for communication and a post-man between the villages. People who could not afford the Mkari's fees or who did not own a donkey walked from one village to another whenever neccessary.
