Author(s) from Durham


CHERYL MCEWAN argues that there is an urgent need for a critical examination of the nature of citizenship in post-apartheid South Africa particularly in terms of black women's experiences. She writes that African women's understandings and experiences of citizenship and the nature of their political activity has the potential to re-orient western feminist understandings of gendered citizenship
