For a decade scholars and researchers in six southern African countries collected oral and written texts by women to make up a collection of documents spanning just over two centuries. The texts in range from political petitions, court records, short stories, poems, communal songs, folktales, letters, and extracts from journals written or recorded by women in South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and Swaziland. (Mozambique does not feature, and will hopefully be included in the east African region edition.)
