A PEOPLE DESIRING TO EMANCIPATE ITSELF MUST UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS OF ITS ENSLAVEMENT

Within the Pan Africanist Women’s Organisation (PAWO) we resolved to invoke a debate on the “origins of the subjugation of women” rather than deal with the obvious topics that usually comes up at this time such as the issue of women abuse and women oppression as these issues are a given. We do not undermine the importance of dealing with these issues however at this juncture we are interested on how the oppression of women came about. As per the theme of this address “a people desiring to emancipate itself must understand the process of its enslavement” [WP van Schoor, 1951]. In essence if we understand where we come from, we will know where we are going and what vehicle we must use to arrive at our destination…that of an egalitarian society freeing both men and women from bondage.
