This is the first collection of feminist critical essays by and about women in South Africa to appear outside of that country. Many of the pieces were written after February 1990, when President de Klerk lifted the ban on black political organizations. The recognition that a just society cannot be achieved without freedom from gender oppression as well as racial oppression informs these essays and has a direct bearing on the creation of a new society in South Africa.
