The publication of Cherryl Walker's book ... is an important and welcome event for South African historiography - Journal of Southern African Studies, 1983
Current research and political debate will continue to wrestle with questions thrown up by this pioneering study - Journal of African History, 1986
Drawing on interviews with women activists and archival sources, Cherryl Walker has provided a detailed and hitherto unrecorded account of women's involvement in the political struggles of twenieth-century South Africa. Her book is both a rigorious analysis of the interaction of class, race and gender, and a lively political history. First published in 1982, this classic work - for long banned and unavailable in South Africa - is now being reissued with a new introduction by the author.
Cherryl Walker, who lectures in the department of sociology at the University of Natal, is the co-author of The Surplus People: Forced Removals in South Africa and is the editor of Women and Gender in Southern Africa to 1945.
