Angry women ‘ticking time bomb’ for SA universities

The anger of black women is a “ticking time bomb” for South African universities, an academic has warned, urging university leaders to take women’s grievances seriously.

“Many black women are unhappy, and growing angrier and angrier, at the powers-that-be in South Africa’s higher education landscape,” said Grace Khunou, a professor at the University of Johannesburg. She was speaking at a conference held at the University of South Africa from 16 August.

Khunou said that black women are often ignored and slandered when they raise their concerns. She adds that the level of anger is an indicator of just how deeply women are invested in the higher education sector in the country.
