This study investigates the experiences of women journalists during the last phase of Namibia’s liberation struggle against South African rule. Black or white, women journalists in Namibia made significant contributions to the liberation cause - including the founding of a high-profiled newspaper - whilst others worked for media sympathetic to the apartheid government.
Based on interviews and deploying feminist media theory, Maria Mboono Nghidinwapays close attention to the gendered power relationships in the newsrooms of newspapers and radio stations at the time. She looks at the intense political intimidations which targeted women and, in particular, the constraints experienced by black women journalists.
Maria Mboono Nghidinwa’s study emphasises “that there were always struggles within the struggle … The gender bias in the public sphere, not least the media and their reporting, is one of the cases in point.” From the Introduction by Henning Melber, Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation.
