The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) in partnership with the Association of Rural Advancement (AFRA) will hold a dialogue focusing on the exploitation of women in KZN farms on Thursday 22 August 2019 at 12h00.

The dialogue titled, the condition of unfreedom: Super-exploitation and subjugation of women on farms in Umgungundlovu District, KwaZulu-Natal, will seek answers to questions such as:
 
How are women farm dwellers kept compliant and submissive as workers, wives and citizens?
How are they forced to accept the long hours involved in seasonal work that is paid below minimum wage?
How are they forced to live in un-serviced, uninhabitable houses that increase their labour hours and put their health and the health of their children and families at risk?
