Lives Of Courage: Women For A New South Africa

By Diana E.H. Russell

Basic Books, 1989, 375 pp.

South African women speak about racial and sexual politics. Taken together, these women's stories and reflections strongly render the pains experienced by the most vulnerable in the brutal world structured by apartheid-as well as of "misfit" women in a highly sexist society. This is an excellent book for radically changing times, as it addresses some of the fundamental dilemmas of human relations that will dog South Africa's people for the foreseeable future.
