Undated, early 1980s?
Pearl A. Marsh, a black women and doctoral student at UC Berkeley, has formed the South Africa Women's Fund to assist women there in their struggle against political and economic repression. Marsh traveled extensively in South Africa and assessed the plight of women. This is an open letter to members of Black Women Organized for Action (BWOA) offering to present a program on “Women's Resistance to Apartheid.” The document mentions The Third World Fund, the Defiance Campaign of the 1950s, labor and community struggles in Cape Town, the Food and Canning Workers Union, Crossroads (a squatter community).
