about this item

How did African women experience apartheid? How did they create a sense of belonging in places that actively denied and resisted their presence? In this compelling study, Rebekah Lee explores the process and consequences of settlement through the everyday lives and testimonies of three generations of African women in Cape Town during the apartheid (1948–94) and post-apartheid periods. Through detailed analyses of women’s domestic economies, their social and kinship relations, their home renovations and patterns of energy use, this study evokes a larger history of gendered and generational struggles over identity, place and belonging. African Women and Apartheid provides a deep and nuanced understanding of African women in apartheid and post-apartheid society, and of urbanisation in South Africa. It will be valuable to anyone with interests in South African culture and society, gender, urbanisation, the African family, oral history and memory.
