Mamphela Ramphele | Can African Women Redefine Liberation for All?

October 6, 2015
Mamphela Ramphele, Can African Women Redefine Liberation for All?

Mamphela Aletta Ramphele BI ’89, of South Africa, is interested in whether African women can redefine freedom for the benefit of all. If so, what would it take to redefine freedom? How different would such redefined freedom be from the postcolonial and postapartheid freedom Africa is experiencing now? What values, systems, and practices would characterize freedom for all as a lived experience? And why should we focus on African women as agents of change?
