Professor of Law & SARChi for Equality, Law and Social Justice – School of Law – WITS University – Prof. Cathi Albertyn

This week on Womanity – Women in Unity, Dr. Amaleya Goneos-Malka talks to Prof. Cathi Albertyn, who is a Professor of Law and holds the South African Research Chair in Equality, Law and Social Justice at the School of Law – University of the Witwatersrand. Prof. Albertyn’s early work addressed aspects of South Africa’s oppressive past and inequalities, where law served as a tool of oppression.
