Book celebrates 26 trailblazing women
Meet the rebels, artists, troublemakers, athletes, dancing queens and freedom fighters who shaped our past – and are changing our future.
An A to Z of Amazing South African Women tells the stories of 26 trailblazing South African women through accessible stories and illustrations that are as bright and bold as the women they depict.
From Fatima Meer to Caster Semenya, Natalie du Toit to Dope St Jude, this is a book about women who ask too many questions, who defy injustice, who refuse to take no for an answer. It is a celebration of the courage and determination of the activists, scientists and storytellers who have gone before us – as well as a recognition of the everyday heroism of ordinary South African woman doing extraordinary things.
The work of writer Ambre Nicolson and illustrator Jaxon Hsu, a husband and wife team, it’s being launched this month.
