Gender Related Social Groups

Men and women form age sets in Swazi society (Kuper, 1963, p. 57). Men's age sets were traditionally regiments that could be called into battle during the precolonial period. During the period of Kuper's field research, they performed public service. Some of these young men lived in barracks near royal or chiefly homesteads. Women's age sets are less formal; they consist of work parties of unmarried and married women, and are not given a common name nationally.

In contemporary Swaziland, women and men are involved in a variety of social clubs locally, nationally, and internationally.
