International Women's Day 8 March 2016: Ain’t I a woman? Speech by Sojourner Truth

In anticipation of International Women's Day on 8 March 2016, we share this speech by Sojourner Truth, given in 1852, Ohio to one of the founding meetings of women demanding the vote in the United States - at that time, all white and middle class women. Sojourner Truth was herself an ex-slave, who became a leader in the anti-slavery movement as well as for the emancipation of women.

The Story of Pauline, a Survivor of the SASOL strike of 1987 in Sasolburg

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.

The Story of Farmworker Maria Mnyane from Moutse in former KwaNdebele

As we commemorate International Women's Day today, we share the story of Farmworker Maria Mnyane:

In 1986 I was at the Nissan pumps (on the farm where I worked in then KwaNdebele), living in misery.  Every sunrise the farmers were all over the farm, (to pick us up to come to do the work).  We were driven to work. They would say, “we made the farms filthy.”  We were hungry. We were given porridge with a teaspoon of brown sugar.  By the end of the month we were paid R2 in the 1980s.  (they would tell us, “If you don’t want to work leave the farm and go to your father Mandela”. We were forced with guns and whips to work even on Sundays.
