WORKING WOMEN (article first published : 2001-04-21)

In partnership with The Workers' College, Kwa Muhle Museum will present an exhibition titled Working Women which opens on April 27 to run until the end of June.

The exhibition is the collective effort of a number of photographers and the images were collated by photographer Rafs Mayet. The motivation was to highlight the different types of work in which women are engaged and to focus on both the formal and informal sector as well as the nature and range of women’s activities.

The collection also illustrates women's unpaid work in the form of housework and child-rearing thus concluding that “women are the most exploited of the working class. Despite this, or perhaps because of this, women are always located at the forefront of the struggle for basic human rights, like access to water, education, housing, health care, better wages”.

A presentation by Kuki Ndlovu, Provincial Manager of DENOSA, featuring readings and performances will accompany this exhibition.
