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.
