The Anne-Klein-Frauenpreis 2017 (Anne Klein Women's Prize 2017) goes to Nomarussia Bonase, anactivist for women's rights and justice in South Africa and Khulumani's National Facilitator.

The Anne Klein Women's Prize is awarded for the sixth time and is endowed with 10,000 euros. The price will be presented at a ceremony on March 3, 2017 in Berlin, held by Ulrike Poppe, commissioner of the state of Brandenburg.

From the officia press release in German (Google translation):

In their motivation the jury states:
Nomarussia Bonase continues in South Africa for justice for the victims and survivors of the apartheid regime a. It also does this, especially for women who have not been heard of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (1996 - 1998) and who should be given justice and reparation. Nomarussia Bonase is National Coordinator at "Khulumani". "Khulumani" means "to speak loudly, pronounce, take the floor". The organization includes 104,000 apartheid victims / survivors. The local groups are very well cross-linked. Women, in particular, are encouraging each other to fight jointly for the political recognition of the wrongs committed against women. They demand, for example, to recognize that sexual violence was used as a weapon. They provide concrete advice on health problems and legal issues. They encourage women to critically question the process of reconciliation from a women's perspective and not to allow themselves to be pushed into the role of passive victims or petitioners.
