They fought for freedom: Helen Joseph by Joseph Frederikse

Helen Joseph played key roles in the Congress of Democrats, Federation of South African Women, UDF and the ANC. Charged with treason in the 1950s and one of the leaders of the march by women in 1956, the "granny" of the struggle had the dubious honour of being the first South African placed under house arrest.
