This episode of RHH is our second of a three-part series on South Africa. I speak with Ms. Caroline Peters, a South African feminist and human rights defender and an award-winning activist against gender-based violence.
Ms. Peters discusses her life and experiences living and working as a coloured woman in South Africa during the 90's. She tells me about the differences in discrimination between groups during apartheid, and her feelings about how she navigated those chapters in South African history. During our conversation she opens up about how she found, lost, and reclaimed her voice, and the painful obstacles that she had to overcome during the process.
In her work today, she continues to raise awareness for gender based violence, working to serve, support, and uplift women fleeing violent relationships. Tune in to learn more about her story, history, and how we can participate in creating safer societies for women.
