One of the significant themes in Anthills of the Savannah is the way people particularly women reacts to with political handicaps of Nigeria. The women in Achebe’s Anthills of the Savannah shun and resent political handicaps of Nigeria. Educated mass of Nigeria who become impotent and corrupt of ideas, either through lack of vision or will, and who are ideologically with political imperfections are almost always condemned to misery in the nations through frequent coups and unrest. There seems to be no compassion or sympathy for the nation. The people seem only concerned with their own well-being and survival. As Achebe goes through the narrative, he points to corresponding ideas on the political vision of the fictional Kangan which is none but his beloved country, Nigeria where the story is embroidered. In the book he demonstrates a never-ending pattern of ruin and rebuilding, perpetuating the way and validating the role and the authority of the women.
