Oppression and Resistance: The Struggle of Women in Southern Africa

Synopsis

"Lapchick and Urdang's work is an important addition to the material on contemporary Southern African women. Its level... makes it accessible to a general audience. The authors have drawn from United Nations documents; South African newspapers, research reports, government policy statements; and interviews with participants in the various resistance activities documented. As a revision of papers prepared for the World Conference of the United Nations Decade for Women in Copenhagen in 1980, the work's focus is the present apartheid system and efforts to abolish it." - International Journal of African Historical Studies
