The purpose of this article is to investigate potential cultural barriers and commonalities amongst black and white South African women. This study posits that there is little doubt that meaningful intercultural communication amongst black and white South African women is only possible if the participants on the one hand take cognisance of cultural commonalities, and conversely show mutual understanding for cultural barriers. How can this be achieved? An important way in which this could be implemented is through intercultural communication training. This study argues that the use of the intercultural transformation theory should be used in intercultural training sessions for women students enrolled at tertiary institutions, so as to gain insight into, and knowledge of one another's cultures.
