RAHIMA MOOSA HOUSE

Womens' leader Rahima Moosa shared this home with her husband and fellow-activist Dr "Ike" H.M. Moosa. The couple played a significant role in organising the 1955 Congress of the People, and in collecting signatures for the Freedom Charter. Together with Lillian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph and Sophia Williams, Rahima Moosa led the epic March of 20 000 women to the Union Buildings in 1956, to protest against the extension of apartheid pass laws.
