The chapters in this book were first presented at a seminar organised by the Centre for Applied Legal Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand in 2009 and a number of them were published in the 2009 (27) volume of the South African Journal on Human Rights. While theoretical analyses of socio-economic rights have become a growing area of study in South Africa and elsewhere, a sustained body of scholarship on the gendered dimensions of these rights has yet to develop. Given the well-known fact that South African women, and particularly African women, suffer most acutely from poverty and lack of access to services, this book presents a timely and welcome starting point for what should become a growing area of academic study, activism and strategic litigation.
