The small, restless, dominating figure of Lilian Ngoyi typified the new spirit of feminine defiance in the ‘50s. Her brilliant personality shot her to political prominence and she became the only woman on the national executive of the African National Congress. In 1956 Lilian was one of the four leaders of the Women’s March to Pretoria. Five years later she was placed under heavy banning orders, and lived almost the last third of her life as a ‘non-person.’
