Social historians have paid little attention to the struggle of black women against the pass laws, yet, as was the case with other oppressive measures, the protest made by black woman was startlingly forceful and energetic. Jubilant, defiant dancing, hand-clapping and chanting exploded and the women attracted massive popular support. Julia Wells's account is vivid, colourful and moving, and is punctuated with descriptions of local personalities and events. This book will interest all those concerned with woman's issues and social history in South Africa.
