Remembering Lilian Ngoyi and Helen Joseph: The Value of the Female Gaze

In this seminar, Kim Miller looks at two prominent anti-apartheid resistance leaders- Lilian Ngoyi and Helen Joseph- and the imagery that represents them as political subjects and friends.

Miller considers how women’s friendships with each other, and the ways in which those relationships are represented, teach us the value of feminine forms of heroism that women are uniquely capable of performing.
