Wnl30. AAM Women’s Newsletter 30, January–February 1987

News briefings from South Africa and Namibia reported on the launch of a trade union for domestic workers (SADWU), the arrest of striking women hospital workers and the rape of women in northern Namibia by South African soldiers. The issue advertised a conference on women in Southern Africa organised by the National Assembly of Women and the Women’s International Democratic Federation. It highlighted the detention of over 8000 children following the declaration of a State of Emergency in South Africa in June 1986. It also reported on the refusal by some women’s magazines in Britain to carry ads from the TUC calling for a consumer boycott of South African goods.
