Discourse Café with Wendy Pekeur

Struggles of the working class

The FVZS Institute and KAS cordially invite you to the 3rd Discourse Cafe "Struggles of the working class" with Wendy Jasmine Pekeur as the guest speaker. The aim of the series is to promote a culture of informed debate on various topical issues.

Details

Wendy Jasmine Pekeur has established the first women-focused trade union in South Africa to champion the employee rights of female farmers. Wendy works in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, the country’s foremost wine producing region. In applying the trade union model to a farm setting, Wendy is empowering women (most seasonal laborers) to break the cycles of poverty, disenfranchisement, and alcoholism.
