Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu was one of the most important anti-apartheid activists in South Africa, and the wife of fellow activist Walter Sisulu. During her husband’s imprisonment on Robben Island from 1964 to 1989, Albertina, who worked as a nurse, also underwent detention and ten years of house arrest. Nonetheless, she continued to work for human rights, focusing particularly on the strengthening of women’s organisations.
