An A to Z of Amazing South African Women
This is no ordinary A to Z. With each letter of the alphabet this book honours the contribution of women to South Africa’s past, present and future. Using short, easy to read biographies and illustrations that are as bright and bold as the women they depict, this book shares the life stories of 26 South African rebels, artists, troublemakers, athletes, dancing queens and freedom fighters.

From Fatima Meer to Caster Semenya, Cissie Gool to Thuli Madonsela, this is a book about women who ask too many questions, who defy injustice, who refuse to “know their place”. It is a celebration of the courage, determination and compassion of the activists, scientists and storytellers who have gone before us – as well as recognising the everyday heroism of ordinary South African women doing extraordinary things.
