Women's Political Role in South Africa
MetadataShow full item record
Women have been involved in the struggle for freedom in South Africa for nearly one hundred years. African men and women joined together to liberate themselves against a common enemy, the state. The first five chapters of this paper will discuss women's role within the society of South Africa and the liberation struggle of the people before 1990, when de Klerk took over the office of President. The final chapter will cover women's push for equality since that time, including their role in the April 1994 elections. Black women tended not to work independently for women's rights, instead, they joined movements that worked towards freedom and independence for everyone. In South Africa, women's role has not always been in the spotlight nor has their participation always taken place in the political sphere, but the women have helped shape the South Africa of today and they will help lead the country to a brighter future.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
