You Have Struck a Rock
Preview Language: English
More than 40 years before, the government had first attempted to bring women into the Pass system which controls the labour and lives of Black men. It met then with such fierce resistance that no further attempt was made until the 1950’s, when the present Nationalist government was consolidating its policy of Apartheid. This film, using a collage of rare photographs and. newsreeI footage, and recent interviews with some of the women actively involved, recreates the Women's campaigns, spanning more than a decade, against one-of the most: basic and iniquitous of Apartheid's law.
