To mark South African Women’s Day 2022, we gathered at Newington Green Meeting House to screen the ground-breaking film “Murder in Paris”, an investigative documentary that traces the motives for the assassination of Anti-Apartheid activist Dulcie September.

Our commissioned artist, Nefateri Asantewa (pictured, right), presented her work “South African Flag“, which gives reference to the over 20 000 women who took part in the 1956 Women’s March to Pretoria and which celebrates their resilience and contribution to the struggle against apartheid and provokes thinking about ongoing inequalities.

During the evening attendees also viewed the exhibition, Pride Belongs to the People: Images of Soweto Pride on display at Newington Green Meeting House, held as part of The Culthouse’s Pop Up Shop supported by The Leverhulme Trust and the School of Social Sciences at the University of Westminster.

The audience participated in a conversation on the role and impact of women in the fight against apartheid. Together, we explored the stories, histories and voices of former generations to inspire future ones. More detail about this event can be viewed on our blog pages
