WINNIE film screening – Black Women and the Struggle: Marginalisation, Poverty and Patriarchy


IJR invites you to the screening of WINNIE followed by a dialogue on ” Black Women and the Struggle: Marginalisation, Poverty and Patriarchy” 

The screening seeks to unpack and bring to light the forgotten black ‘herstory/herstories’ of Winnie Mandela and the important crucial role she played in the fight against apartheid.

The post screening dialogue will centre around the erasure of black women and their ‘herstories’ from our collective history; to highlight the crucial and pivotal role black women have consistently played throughout history in the struggle for black freedom; unpack the triple oppression (race, class and gender) of black women that make the black woman the face of poverty in South Africa; and further to inspire open honest dialogue about the racialised and gendered nature of the struggle for freedom.

Date : Tuesday, 25 October 2017
Time: 17h00 – 19h30
Venue: IJR Offices, 105 Hatfield Street, Cape Town
