Sibongile Ndashe is a South African attorney who founded the Initiative for Strategic Litigation in Johannesburg. She candidly opens up about what it means to feel unequal in a country where she feels constant fear for her own personal safety.
“The fact that my body, my person, is vulnerable at all times ... I am worried about being attacked—it means that I am unequal. I’m not able to participate as a citizen in the same way that men actually participate. Equality, therefore, will have to mean that all of those barriers that do not make me feel like a full citizen are removed so that I can participate fully and enjoy all my human rights.”
