About this book:

Helen Joseph was one of the main organisers in the Women's March of 9 August 1956. Arrested on a charge of high treason, Helen suffered constant persecution.


In this account, Joseph writes about enduring the Treason Trial - one of the longest and most important trials in our history. She shares stories of prison, the daily humiliations, but also their perseverance and small triumphs. Originally banned and unavailable for decades, this book adds to our understanding of South Africa's history.
