Zimbabwean women have few choices when it comes to eking out a livelihood, leaving most with the option of either staying in their country and watching their children starve, or illegally seeking a new life in South Africa. Juma Donke looks at how these women are affected by South Africa’s immigration policies, drawing on the work of Sally Peberdy, author of Selecting Immigrants: National Identity and South Africa’s Immigration Policies.
Though in the past female migrants where often considered “baggage” of their male counterparts due to their legal status, things are changing. Because the nature of industry is moving away from mining and the type of work available is more suited to women, husbands stay at home to look after the family while the wife acts as the primary bread-winner

Book Description Wits University Press, South Africa, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. At time when (im)migration is at the forefront of international and South African debates, this title critically examines the relationship between changes in South Africa's immigration policies, and shifts in the construction of national identity by the South African state. Relating the history of the immigration policies of the South African State between 1910 and 2005, it explores the synergy between periods of significant change in state discourses and policies of migration, and those historical moments when South Africa was reinvented politically or in the process of active nation building. It is in these periods that the relationships between immigration, nationalism and national identity is most starkly revealed. In an interdisciplinary work, Peberdy provides the first history of South Africa's immigration legislation. It will be of local and international interest to not only academic readers but also those working on immigration policy, interested in South African history and identity, and activists.
