Melanie Judge and Dee Smythe

The chapter explores the relationship of law to gender and sexual rights and politics in postapartheid South Africa. The turn to democracy enabled transformative possibilities for gender and sexual justice in which law was enlisted to undo the racial, sexual and gender inequalities and discriminations of the past. Through a focus on two historic moments of political protest that took place in 1956 and 2016, respectively, and in the face of the persistence of gender violence, the chapter interrogates gender politics and its entanglements with, in and against law.
