Today we celebrate International Women's Day and share this story of Pauline who survived the 1987 SASOL strike under Apartheid.
I was living in Zamdela township at Sasolburg, I was working at SASOL. I had a small child. All of us workers went to hear about the strike, both men and women. I had my child on my back. Then the police came…. The police told us to go home. We tried to run. I tried to climb the gate.
