What you'll do

I am hosting a tour that explores the history of women in South Africa, particularly looking at their contribution to the struggle movement in South Africa as well as contemporary South Africa. In my experience, I aim to not only look at the struggles women encounters but also the fantastic successes that helped shape the South African society. We will engage with different women in various spheres of life in order for guests to have a well-rounded view of contemporary South Africa and how women still actively play a role in the design and building of South Africa's culture, the economy, as well as the society at large. The tour will start off at the Durban City Hall where we begin with getting familiar with South African history in general, this will be followed by a visit to the Gugu Dlamini Park where we will discuss notable female activists in Durban, we will follow with a visit to KwaMuhle, where I will discuss the Beer Hall March as well as the Women's March. We then walk to the Durban ICC to discuss contemporary female pioneers then go to the Voices of Women Museum to discuss how the stories of South African women have been documented and kept in the Durban area. We will end the tour off by meeting female entrepreneurs along the Durban beachfront.

A history nerd and female empowerment activist, Gugu Radebe has a passion for telling stories of women, both historical and contemporary in the unique setting of the South African society. Durban has a rich history of activism and culture which has always been a deep interest for Gugu in her work both as an educator as well as a storyteller. In this tour, she gets to combine her experience as a museum educator with her work around women's empowerment to create this celebration of strength, rich characters and pioneers who are often sidelined in mainstream history.
