Deconstructing the Definition of Freedom Fighter is an intergenerational conversation, between the historical figures of liberation and the contemporary custodians of freedom, on the multiple roles of women occupy in the conflict and equality in times of reconstruction.
The aim of this event is t shift the collective attitudes on the contribution of women in the fight against Apartheid and the building of a new nation. As a patriarchal society, in traditional and culture, more South Africans need to understand that women were not merely personal assistants to the men we have some to revere.
