Being a woman in Cape Town: Telling your story

Author: Nancy Richards and Carol du Toit
ISBN: 978-0-9946627-6-7

What’s it like being a woman in Cape Town? An organisation called WOMAN ZONE decided to find out. Over the course of a year they went to visit thirteen women in thirteen very different communities and invited them to tell their personal stories.

They listened, they recorded and carefully transcribed what each woman had to say. In this book are those stories, a collection of women with ‘everyday lives’.

They come from Steenberg/Muizenberg, Nyanga, Khayelitsha, Lavender Hill, Claremont, Manenberg, Pinelands, Wetton/Ottery, Plattekloof, Kuil’s River, Wynberg and Woodstock; and one who reflects on life in District Six, but now lives in Summergreens/Milnerton.

To similarly empower other women, there is also a chapter on How to tell your story.
