Abstract:There is an urgent need for a critical examination of the nature of citizenship in postapartheid South Africa and, in particular, black women's experiences of citizenship and the ways in which their formal citizenship is mediated by informal structures of power, cultural barriers and domestic patriarchal relations. There are theoretical and political lessons to be learned, both within South Africa and beyond, from understanding the process of political transformation in South Africa and assessing its gendered impacts.
