Nelson Mandela said, “Freedom cannot be achieved unless the women have been emancipated from all forms of oppression.” As South Africa’s first democratically-elected president and a revolutionary activist, Mandela is famous for his fight for racial equality. He’s less known for his impact on women’s rights.
Mandela championed equal rights for women worldwide, saying, “As long as women are bound by poverty and as long as they are looked down upon, human rights will lack substance.” He made changes that improved women’s representation in government, bettered female healthcare, and upheld reproductive rights changing South Africa and setting a precedent for the rest of the world.
