In the run-up to the elections, we’re celebrating #21Sheroes – some of the women who fought a racist, apartheid state to help win our freedoms. Their resistance, courage & protest inspired a legacy we honour in Freedom Month. They also remind us never to take our political rights for granted. Follow #21Sheroes for more.
Growing up in poverty, Liz Abrahams was forced to leave school at 14 to work in a fruit factory, where racism & exploitation were rife. These hardships drove her to become a champion of workers’ rights & to dedicate her life to the trade union movement & the anti-apartheid struggle. Today, voting is how we continue to protect the hard-won rights of workers – and all South Africans. #VoteANC #21Sheroes
