In September of 2001, thousands of people met at a United Nations conference in South Africa to tackle issues of racism, xenophobia, and other forms of discrimination.

On this program from the Women’s Desk of the National Radio Project, we bring you the voices of women from around the world who attended the conference. They discuss how oppression of women interconnects with racism, and share concrete strategies for change. We’ll also explore some of their frustrations with the “new” South Africa.
