Women in South African history : they remove boulders and cross rivers/basus'iimbokodo, bawel'imilambo

 


Linked to the question of feminisms is the notion of women's heterogeneity in terms of their identities, choices and the spaces they occupy. Consequently, this volume does not attempt to bring a uniform and singular form of representation and voice- its point of departure is the multiplicity of women's voices, identities and feminisms.

The approach of this volume is one which links the past and the present and asserts that the present is also history. Consequently, the volume covers both past and contemporary periods and seeks to develop a connective thread between them.

 

Preface :

The intention of this book was to examine the ways in which gender intersects with race, culture, class and other forms of identity and location in South African history. In looking at women in different periods, and covering a range of themes, the contributors have attempted to show the interconnectedness of social, economic, cultural and historical aspects and how these mediate the history women's place and location in South Africa.
