South Africa: A film on women’s struggle for gender equality
In South Africa there is a long history of women’s struggle for equality and justice. Long before gaining full membership in the ANC in 1943, there were women standing up and protesting against the passport laws. To this day, there are still more battles to be fought. In this movie, women members of the ANC give their perspective on these questions and why they matter.
– There are similarities with the struggle for non-racialism, you can’t just say black people mobilize for non-racialism, you also have to bring white people into the picture and say that you have a common future, a common responsibility to build South Africa, says Febe Potgieter, member of the ANC.
The movie (3 minutes, In English with Swedish subtitels) was produced by The International Palme Center in 2012. Member organizations and everyone interested are welcome to spread it, show it, and use it in their own information work.
