Call Me Woman is the autobiography of Ellen Kuzwayo, a black South African woman whose life as a social worker, woman's rights activist, politician, and more was woven in political history of South Africa for almost 60 years.

Call Me Woman is among that small group of books that have entered directly into my consciousness and changed my frame of reference.

This book is true testimony from a wonderful woman. For myself, she is one of those people who give me faith in the new and different South Africa they will create.

—Nadine Gordimer
