Albertina Sisulu

Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu (born 1919) is a black South African anti–apartheid activist, and the widow of fellow activist Walter Sisulu (1912 - 2003).


Sisulu said the following in 1987, referring to Soweto, the urban area southwest of Johannesburg constructed for the settlement of black people.

"Women are the people who are going to relieve us from all this oppression and depression. The rent boycott that is happening in Soweto now is alive because of the women. It is the women who are on the street committees educating the people to stand up and protect each other."[1]
