Ties that bind

Tshisela, Namhla (2012) Ties that bind. Masters thesis, Rhodes University.




This collection of short stories about contemporary black South African women reveals their hopes and anxieties, and explores their relationships with themselves, their families, and the people around them. It sets out to challenge stereotypes about black women being browbeaten in a country riddled by poverty and disease by portraying women successfully forging their identities in society.
