Who was Jessie Duarte?

It was in the month of March when Jessie was diagnosed with cancer and then she had to take a leave from the ANC, the place she used to work at, in order to recover from her disease and take some time for herself. It was also at that time when she started writing about the women’s movement that was built up in the 1980s.

It was a piece of honor for her which was titled ‘The meaning of Jessie Duarte and her Generation’ but the author was not able to send it to her as she was scared to send it as it sounded like an obituary and she thought that it might get her sad. However, now that she is no more in this world the author wishes that if she had only had the courage to send the book to her when she was alive. This feeling will stay with her now that she is unable to send it to her. However, it will serve as a memory of her if we try and be a little optimistic. Now, let’s talk a little about the woman named Jessie.
