Synopsis

Born in England, Helen Joseph came to South Africa via India when she was twenty-six. Living a privileged life did not stop Helen from questioning racism and inequalities in her adopted country. It was only in her forties when she began working actively to bring about political change. Helen played key roles in the Congress of Democrats, Federation of South Africa 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 and the dubious honour of being the first South African placed under house arrest. Undeterred by banning she constantly challenged her opponents and still had the time to form strong friendships with activity such as Lilian Ngoyi and David Webster. When asked why she continued to fight against apartheid Helen replied: "It makes me more rich than anybody I can think of."
