Time for women to make history yet again

Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela

In her preface to Karina Turok’s book, Life and Soul: Portraits of Women Who Move South Africa, Mamphela Ramphele celebrates the strength of women, their resilience and resolve in the face of adversity. Echoing an earlier period of women’s struggle Ramphele reminds us of the resolute spirit that inspired 20 000 women to march to the Union Buildings in a direct challenge to apartheid oppression.
