You Have Struck A Rock: Online Discussion

Kwela invites you to a digital discussion of You Have Struck A Rock by Gugulethu Mhlungu. Danielle Bowler will be in conversation with Gugs. Catch it live on the NB-Uitgewers/Publishers Facebook page. About this book: Drawing on the experiences of women ranging from political activists to domestic workers, sex workers and students, commentator and writer Gugulethu Mhlungu examines how history has shaped the conditions women face today. She also considers the impact of pass laws, land dispossession, racial discrimination and gender-based violence. She concludes that there is still plenty of work to be done in making real the South Africa imagined by the Constitution.
