“Things have changed for women. We do what men do. I feel like we’re independent now, more than before. We make our own money. We don’t depend on men.” —Zamazee Ikalana, 25
“To be a modern women in Durban is about not being afraid to be who you want to be, and not being too influenced by the Western world. I haven’t come across many feminists here. I think they’re highly sensitive about it in America, though.” — Kyra Moon Halfpenny, 27
“There are some cultural traditions that I’ve left behind. Gender inequality—that’s my main thing. I even fight with my dad about it.” —Zime Msoni, 20
“Women have always been undermined, so they’re given first preference now when considered for jobs. There’s a push for equality, especially among young black women, because we’re doubly disadvantaged.” —Sane Lisiee Ndabezitha, 25
“I’ve got so many opportunities. I can do whatever I want. Everything is in my hands.” —Queen, 23
“I try to empower women. I talk to young girls and become their big sister when it comes to figuring out what they want to do. But I wouldn’t really call myself a feminist.” —Nomhle Mtshali, 25
