Please join us in celebrating our very own Dr Lizelle de Wee who is a lecturer in the department (third right), on being awarded a Doctor Litterarum et Philosophiae (DLitt et Phil) on 16th October 2018. The focus of her thesis was around "The meaning of corrective rape by Black South African lesbians". Dr de wee reflects, "My doctoral graduation marked, for me, a moment of women's emancipation, an instance of liberation. As Prof. Gertie Pretorius's 25th and last Doctoral candidate, I stood as she read out my abstract, conflicted in moment of sheer joy, yet pain. The 16th of October will remain etched in my memory banks forever! To all the women who have survived rape, and for those who continue to, my comrades……Aluta Continua!!".
