Historical background on Women’s Section

The ANC Women’s League’s life, as an organised entity for women, begin with the formation of the Bantu Women’s League in 1931. The significance of the formation of the Bantu Women’s League lies in the creation of space for expression for women in the ANC. It would however not be until 1943 that women would gain formal ANC membership, and in 1948 that the ANC Women’s League be formed. Prominence on the national political arena was not always matched by due recognition in formal organisational structures. Women were very prominent in the 1952 Defiance Campaign and were active in fighting against passes, Bantu Education and other social issues compounding the burden of apartheid. Women activism was having an impact on the male dominated ANC leadership and would eventually be given due recognition with the appointment of Lilian Ngoyi, then Women’s League president, to the ANC National Executive Committee in 1956. The banning of the ANC in 1960 meant that the Women’s League also had to adapt to a different form of existence and way of carrying forth its multi-pronged fight against the monster that was apartheid and against sexism. The denial of legal existence meant that the Women’s League had to operate from exile and through the underground machinery.

In exile, the Women’s League functioned as the Women’s Section and was accountable to the office of the ANC Secretary-General. At the top of the structure of the Women’s Section was the National Women’s Secretariat (NWS). This was a national working body driving the Programme of Action adopted at a women’s national conference. Giving direction to the work of the Women’s Section, the NWS had to receive and consider reports from all organs of the Women’s Section. The Secretariat’s work was driven by its different desks, which were: administration; finance, projects and welfare; publicity, information and research; international; internal; children; political education; education and culture; and the desk for women’s emancipation. The NWS was tasked with organising South African women into the ANC. It furthermore had to mobilise material and political support for the ANC. And, in addition to issuing propaganda material for internal and external consumption, the NWS had to report regularly to the office of the Secretary-General.

Elected members of the women’s leadership constituted the National Women’s Secretariat. In 1978 the National Executive Committee meeting that considers structures of the ANC decided to appoint the core of the Women’s Secretariat that would be based at the organisation’s headquarters and perform the day to day work of the Women’s Section. People appointed following that decision were (a) Florence Mophosho, as the head of the Women’s Section; (b) Mittah Seperepere, as the deputy head; and (c) Mavis Nhlapo as the administrative secretary.

With developments imposed by the deepening repression inside South Africa and growing demands on ANC women, the National Women’s Secretariat’s structure grew and it ended up comprising of the following personnel: (i) the head of the National Women’s Secretariat who also headed the Women’s Section. She had to supervise the work of the Women’s Section and prepare reports on the state of the organisation for the offices of the ANC president, the treasurer-general and the secretary-general; (ii) the political secretary who deputised as head of the Women’s Section; (iii) the secretary for administration; (iv) the secretary for information, publicity and research; (v) the secretary for internal affairs; (vi) the secretary for international affairs; (vii) the secretary for projects and finance; (viii) the secretary for logistics; and (ix) the secretary for children { see boxes 0028 and 0029 for NWS meetings, and boxes 0042 and 0043 for NWS reports}.

In any given region where the ANC Women’s Section existed, the highest executive body in between regional conferences was the Regional Women’s Committee (RWC). The Regional Women’s Committee was made up of a chairperson; a secretary; treasurer, and a logistics officer. The size of the RWC was dependent upon the size of the Women’s Section in a given region and it fell under the Regional Political Committee. The RWC had a number of varied duties, it had to ensure that decisions of the National Women’s Secretariat were implemented and approve the organisation’s policy documents. The RWC had to raise funds for the Women’s Section and the ANC; it had to ensure discussion and understanding of current political strategies and tactics of the ANC, and it had to ensure that the National Women’s Secretariat was well versed with political, social or other problems as may have been faced by its members in the region.

Some of the women who headed the Women’s Section during the exile years were Florence Mophosho, Ruth Mompati and Gertrude Shope. Ruth Mompati was appointed the first head of the Women’s Section by the National Executive
Committee {see Women’s Secretariat report box 0069, folder 0033}. She furthermore was the chief liaison officer of the Women’s Section around 1966 { see boxes 1 and 107 for her correspondence}. By 1989 she was the administrative secretary in the office of the Secretary-General. In 1971 Florence Mophosho terminated her services at the WIDF Secretariat, and was appointed head of the Women’s Section. Gertrude Shope was the secretary of the Women’s Section between 1971 and 1972, and assumed the position of head of ANC women from 1981 to the re-launching of the Women’s League in 1990.

Women had to contend with a variety of challenges presented by the unique circumstances of life away from home. The Women’s Section had to help women face up to a variety of problems and challenges both within and outside of the ANC. While the organisation strived for equality, ANC membership was not immune from harbouring and displaying prejudicial and discriminatory practises against women. The ANC was not unaffected by sexist beliefs and practises that enveloped society. There were stereotypes about women and the kind of professions suitable for them, another version of the notion of division of labour. Women were faced with attitudes that would have them believe that women and men have different career paths. They furthermore were faced with exclusion from male created and dominated networks and by a lack of role models. In addition to waging war against the apartheid machinery, women thus had to face the extra burden of discriminatory practises fuelled by male chauvinism. The Women’s Section had to fight for the acceptance of the fact that women are able contributors to development and dispel the notion that they are not integral to development.

Women were an integral part of ANC life in exile, they were part of the ANC army Ukhonto weSizwe, influenced positions taken by the leadership, and had development and educational projects for women cadres. While trying not to be
restricted to issues characterised as pertaining to women, the Women’s Section strove to make light the burden of women under trying exile circumstances. The Women’s Section played an advisory role to female cadres and looked after young people, their social life, and discussed with them their problems and politics. Its advisory role extended to other organisational structures such as the Secretary-General’s office, the ANC’s disciplinary committees and MK structures especially on issues affecting women. Disciplinary cases involving female cadres were also referred to the Women’s Section either to deal with on behalf of the ANC or to advise on how the case should be dealt with. The Women’s Section also played an advisory role in family related issues. These would be issues involving children’s education; family visits; access to resources; spouse and children abuse; marriage and divorce.

The role of women within the ANC was crucial in that there were issues that affected female cadres that the Women’s Section had to sensitise the ANC leadership to. The Women’s Section had to help push the ANC into taking progressive decisions about issues affecting women. Times were such that the organisation had to contend with such issues as child-birth or abortion. In 1987 the ANC instituted the Commission on the Emancipation of Women. Headed by the ANC president OR Tambo, this Commission was meant to ensure that there is effective and meaningful participation of women in organisational matters. It was through such efforts that the ANC accepted the attribute “non-sexist” in its vision of a new South Africa.

The ANC had projects targeting different aspects of development. These were educational projects, health project, agricultural and land projects. It also had vocational training workshops. While ANC women were engaged in broader ANC projects, the Women’s Section ran its own projects responsive specifically to women needs. Among some of the projects women ran were:

a) Kate Molale Mothers’ Centre, a maternity place where children were taken care of in cases where mothers had to either be at school or go back to work.
b) Dora Tamana Day care centre, where children whose parents worked far from Lusaka were looked after
c) Charlotte Maxeke Children’s Centre, Morogoro -Following the 1976 uprisings in South Africa, the influx of youth presented the ANC with an accompanying problem of a high rate of pregnancies among young people. The centre was created to help with the upbringing of children, while ensuring that the young parents’ educational or political development is not curtailed.
c) Women publications eg Voice of Women; The Rock; Women and Children under Apartheid. These publications offered a platform and voice for discussing women issues. These also offered an insight into what women were thinking and how they saw issues. The publication Voice of Women (YOW) was the main mouthpiece of the Women’s Section. In 1979 VOW began to be published for internal consumption in South Africa. The intention was to intensify the mobilisation of women in the country.
d) Fundraising -women raised funds by organising lunches where South African dishes would be sold.
e) Africa Club – Agnes Msimang who worked in India as a deputy chief representative of the ANC, and also as a representative of the Women’s Section as well as a scholarships officer, started what would be called Africa
Club at Springsdale and Bluebells schools. This was a project aimed at teaching young school children about Africa, specifically South Africa.
f) Masupatsela (path finders) club for children aged between 5 and 16 years {see box 0049, folder 0036 for historical notes on the development of the Masupatsela}
g) Female students were encouraged to create their own Students Women’s Section units. In countries like Bulgaria, Hungary and the German Democratic Republic Students’ Women’s Section units were created and functional, and they reported to the office of the Chief Representative or locally elected Regional Political Committees.

ANC women were affiliated to a number of international organisations that offered access to new ways of thinking about liberation, women and development, and offered assistance and support in the fight against apartheid. Among some of the bigger organisations the ANC Women’s Section had dealings with or was affiliated to were the Pan-African Women’s Organisation (PAWO), the Women’s International Democratic Federation (WIDF) and various institutions under the United Nations (Organisation). These furthermore offered ANC women a platform to testify about their South African experiences. In addition to affiliating to such organisations, ANC women were also crucial in the formation and running of such organisations.

ANC women were affiliated to the Pan African Women’s Organisation (PAWO) since the latter’s formation in 1963. The formation of PAWO was meant to expedite movement towards the emancipation of African women and to promote
participation in all development, social, political and economic activities of Africa. It furthermore sought to facilitate cooperative relations between African women. In the beginning of 1980 PA WO opened a Regional Information and Publicity office in Luanda. This office was meant to serve as a centre for informing French-speaking countries about the situation in Southern African countries. The office was to be manned by a SW APO and an ANC member, and Pauline Maputo became the first woman to serve on behalf of ANC women.

The Women’s International Democratic Federation (WIDF) was one of the indispensable sources for political and material support to ANC women. The ANC Women’s Section was a member of the WIDF Secretariat and held positions in its Bureau and Council, and thus had to have a representative stationed at the WIDF headquarters in Berlin. Some of the women who have represented the Women’s Section at WIDF are Florence Mophosho, Susan Lamu, Ruth Mompati and Kate Molale.

In making an evaluation of its journey, looking at the part that has already been travelled and the one still to be embarked upon, the ANC makes use of conferences. Conferences become the stage upon which policies, strategies, structures and the quality of the organisation’s leadership are looked at. So it was during the exile years that ANC women also held conferences to evaluate their position in the struggle for South Africa’s liberation. The first ANC women’s conference was held on September 10 – 14, 1981, and the second on September 1987. Both conferences were held in Luanda, Angola. In essence both ANC women conferences were looking at the position of women in society and their participation in the national liberation struggle. They were also looking at how the Women’s Section could strengthen the ANC in its endeavours. One of the major concerns for women activists was that repression and the need for a united front against apartheid held a risk that women’s concerns could be subsumed under the national struggle. Another women’s conference of note that was held was the Malibongwe Conference held in January 1990 in Amsterdam. It sought to provide a forum for dialogue among South African women of all pro-democracy organisations. The Malibongwe Conference was meant for South African as well as international women organisations.

One of the things the ANC Women’s Section achieved was to lobby successfully to have the United Nations declare August 9 as the International Day of Solidarity with the Struggling Women of South Africa and Namibia. Incidentally, it would be on August 9, 1990 that the ANC Women’s League would be re-launched in South Africa following the un-banning of political organisations.

 

 

Scope and Content Note

Journey of the records from Lusaka to SAHA to ANC archives ….. There were 64 boxes and 11 metal trunks with materials from the office of the Women’s Section in Lusaka. These had paper based records from the ANC women’s
office; some sewing material; books; video-cassettes; one film reel; several audiotapes, some memorabilia and publications. The initial sort of the records showed thatin large part the pre-1990 records were to a certain extent sorted while the post 1990 ones were not. Quite a substantial number of records were in a bad state and thus needed to be photocopied. It was furthermore found that there were duplicates of a number of records. Some of those with most duplicates were records from the 1987 women’s conference in Luanda, copies of publications like the Rock and the first ANC Women’s League Newsletter, and press statements on commemorative days. Sewing materials that were found comprised of small boxes of scissors; sewing needles; measuring tapes; binding cloth; boxes with pins, and thimble. The sewing materials that were found were given to the office of the Secretary General of the ANC Women’s League at the organisation’s headquarters in Johannesburg. The ANC Women’s League office forwarded these materials to the Malibongwe Development Project.

When processing and sorting the records an attempt was made to preserve the order they were found in when they came from the South African History Archive. However, since they were grouped and arranged rather broadly, what had to be added was a much more finer detail at the individual level of the different series. In the final analysis, the records were arranged into the following thirteen (13) series:

i) Correspondence, boxes 0001 – 0022
ii) Minutes, boxes 0023 -0029
iii) Reports, boxes 0030 – 0043
iv) Statements, boxes 0044- 0047
v) Discussion documents, boxes 0048 -0060
vi) Regional Women’s Committee, boxes 0061 -0067
vii) Conferences, boxes 0068 -0079
viii) Workshops and Seminars, boxes 0080 -0083
ix) Projects, boxes 84 -90
x) Dealing with other organisations, boxes 0091 -0122
xi) Biographical profiles, boxes 0123 -1024
xii) Publications, boxes 0125 – 0126
xiii) Memorabilia, boxes 0127 – 0130

The different series of the Women’s Section records were arranged in one of two ways. They were either arranged alphabetically or chronologically by date. Looking at these series individually one finds that the series on Correspondence reflects interaction that is in large part within the ANC. This means that this series has correspondence between the Women’s Section and other structures of the ANC, or indeed correspondence between the different structures of the ANC. Correspondence within the ANC dates from as early as 1962 till 1994, with the bulk of the correspondence being that of the 1980s to the 1990s. The series is arranged chronologically by date. This series can be contrasted with the tenth series, labelled Dealing with other organisations, which records the ANC’s interactions with other organisations or government institutions.

The series with Minutes reflects meetings of the various structures of the Women’s Section; meetings of the Women’s Section with other ANC structures, as well as meetings of other ANC departments. While interactions with other
organisations are in large part captured in the tenth series Dealing with other organisations, there would in this series be minutes recording meetings between the ANC and other organisations. Minutes in boxes 0028 and 0029 are recordings specifically of meetings of the National Women’s Secretariat dating from 1971 to 1992. This series is arranged chronologically by date.

Arranged chronologically by date, the series on Reports dates from 1964 to 1991. This series has reports about a range of activities and structures. Among others, there are reports on the units of the Women’s Section; reports sent to the ANCfrom South Africa and from other organisations, and reports on the state of the organisation. There furthermore are reports on activities such as the rebuilding of the Women’s League. Boxes 0042 and 0043 with folders 0214 to 00225 comprise reports of the National Women’s Secretariat.

The fourth series has records that are grouped under Statements. Hereunder are found press statements, speeches, declarations, interviews and opening remarks at meetings or conferences. These statements are not only confined to those of the ANC, there are statements from other organisations or non-ANC sources as can be seen with the remarks made to the ANC International Conference in Arusha which includes an address by Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Chairman of Chama cha Mapinduzi (box 0046, folder 0069). This series on statements is arranged chronologically by date and
covers the period 1972 to 1993.

Opinion papers on the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, the ANC and/or other anti-colonial struggles in the world make up the series Discussion documents. This series is arranged alphabetically by title of the paper and the papers
are from the early 1980s to the early 1990s.

The series on the Regional Women’s Committee comprises correspondence, reports and minutes. These reflect interactions between different Regional Women’s Committees, and interactions between the Regional Women’s Committees and the head of the ANC Women’s Section. They also reflect dealings between other
Organisations and the Regional Women’s Committee. This series covers the period between the early 1970s and 1991.

The series on Conferences reflects ANC women’s conferences as well as conferences hosted by other non-ANC organisations or institutions. These have not been separated but have rather been arranged together chronologically by date. What influenced the decision of not separating ANC from non-ANC conferences is that heavy ANC participation is found in those conferences that may otherwise be taken as non-ANC. Incidentally, international conferences were used extensively by the ANC as a platform for advancing the course of its struggle against the apartheid regime.
The participation of ANC women in international women’s conferences furthermore helped the Women’s Section tap into resources for advancing the course of women in particular. Boxes 0075 to 0077 contain material around the Malibongwe Conference held in Amsterdam in January 1990. Conferences reflected in this series are from 1954 to 1991 and are arranged chronologically by year.

The series on Workshops and Seminars has been dealt with in pretty much the same way as that on conferences because they are similar. Like the one on conferences, ANC participation and input is found within non-ANC seminars and
workshops. Most of these workshops and seminars addressed issues around women and development and were used extensively by ANC women for self and organisational development. The earliest workshop reflected in the series was in 1979 and the latest in 1994. This series is arranged chronologically by year.

The Women’s Section had a variety of projects meant to develop women cadres and in other instances to make bearable exile life, and the series on Projects sheds life on some of these projects. Among some of the projects were the Dora Tamana day care centre; educational and women development programmes; propaganda and media projects like Voice of Women; sewing; driving and fundraising projects. This series has correspondence, minutes, reports and project proposals as sub-series and individual items listed chronologically by year.

The Women Section’s interactions with other organisations, its participation in the international solidarity movement against colonialism, the international community’s assistance to the ANC course and support to the struggles of the women of South Africa, are reflected in the series Dealing with other organisations. This series also reflects interactions between the ANC in exile with organisations and individuals in South Africa, an example being the correspondence between the ANC and the Black Sash in 1983 (box 0091, folder 0007), and correspondence between the Women’s Section and students at the universities of the Witwatersrand and Cape Town between 1979 and 1981 (box 107, folder 0263). Records reflecting interactions with the Black Sash; the Pan African Women’s Organisation; the Women’s International Democratic Federation and the United Nations (Organisation) are substantial and have thus been set aside as a sub-series under each organisation. This series is arranged chronologically by date, and dates from 1965 to 1990, with a bulk
of the records coming from the 1980s.

The series with Biographical profiles has materials containing biographical data that is in large part on ANC women. There are however other struggle personalities whose biographies are included here. This data on people may be in the
form of brief biographies, curricula vitae, articles or obituaries, and is arranged alphabetically by surname.

Publications are split into those issued by the ANC and those emanating from other organisations or institutions. In this series are found newsletters, pamphlets, ANC women magazines like Voice of Women and other published materials. These publications are arranged alphabetically by title.

Audio-visual materials, photographs and paraphernalia constitute the series on Memorabilia. Grouped under audio-visuals are video and audio-cassettes, United Nations tapes and a film reel. Audio-cassettes contain recordings of a workshop on the re-building of the Women’s League in 1990, and an extended meeting of the National Women’s Executive Committee (box 0130). Among the United Nations tapes is a recording of the Conference on Women and Children under Apartheid held in Arusha, Tanzania in June 1985 (box 0130). Slides in a brown envelope (box 0130)
show Swedish women donating a bus to the Lusaka Regional Women’s Committee. Boxes 0127 to 0130 containing memorabilia are oversized.

In conclusion, some of these series are arranged and listed chronologically by year, while others are arranged alphabetically. These series correspondence; minutes; reports; statements; conferences; workshops and seminars; projects, and dealing with other organisations are arranged chronologically by year. Discussion documents;
Regional Women’s Committee; biographical profiles, and publications are arranged alphabetically.
