Reminder: Women’s Charter

CU, No Woman, No Revolution, Part 4


Women’s Charter

The Women’s Charter of 1954 (one year before the Freedom Charter) stands as a monument to South African women’s determination to organise independently as women, but this is an aspiration that has yet to be realised.

The Communist University will discuss the Women’s Charter on Thursday at 17h00 at the UJ, Doornfontein library [see the map above]. 

We meet in the UJ Doornfontein Library. The next session will be as follows: 
  • Date: 29 April (Thursday)
  • Time: 17h00 sharp to 18h30 sharp
  • Venue: The Library, University of Johannesburg, 37 Nind Street, Doornfontein, Johannesburg (former Technikon Witwatersrand). Cars enter from the slip road to the left of the bridge on Siemert Road.
  • Topic: 1954 Women's Charter
