Baba
Men and Fatherhood in South Africa
Linda Richter, Robert Morrell (eds)
Baba: Men and Fatherhood in South Africa provides answers to some of the most difficult questions about fatherhood in South Africa: Who is a father? What does it mean to be a father? Is it important for fathers to do more for children in a world that assumes that mothers take the primary parenting role? Do different people understand fatherhood in different ways? What evidence is there of new fatherhood styles emerging in South Africa?

The country we want to live in
The country we want to live in
Hate crimes and homophobia in the lives of black lesbian South Africans
Nonhlanhla Mkhize, Jane Bennett, Vasu Reddy, Relebohile Moletsane

The country we want to live in: Hate crimes and homophobia in the lives of black lesbian South Africans offers a refreshing perspective on violence perpetrated against black lesbians. Based on a Roundtable seminar, held during the 2006 16 Days of Activism for no Violence against Women and Children, the text engages the heteronormative focus of the campaign, profiles aspects of the dynamic conversations, and builds strong arguments about violence against lesbians. It also profiles the voices of women who are central to the activism around hate crimes and homophobia. In capturing key aspects of the lively discussion of 2006, an update of subsequent events that have bearing on the original seminar is provided, concluding with recommendations that have relevance for research, policy and practice. The country we want to live in makes an impassioned plea about citizenship, belonging and social justice, confirming that silence about these issues is not an option.

Deconstructing Women, Peace and Security
Deconstructing Women, Peace and Security
A critical review of approaches to gender and empowerment
Sandra Cheldelin, Martha Mutisi
The unprecedented United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, established in 2000, radically addressed what we knew about warfare – that civilians and especially women were increasingly targeted – and called for a sea change in the ways women should engage in any rebuilding processes – including conflict management, governance, and peacebuilding efforts. Deconstructing Women, Peace and Security offers a critical review and analysis of many gender-based efforts implemented since 2000, including empowerment policies, strategies, and an in-depth study of four particular cases. It calls out the need for conceptualizing gender as a social structure in policy construction. It assesses the ‘good intentions' of policies designed and implemented with core beliefs they will be good for women. Itprovides an important case-based analysis of what is (and is not) working.

Gender Mainstreaming in HIV/AIDS
Gender Mainstreaming in HIV/AIDS
Seminar proceedings
Sharon Kleintjes, Bridgette Prince, Allanise Cloete, Alicia Davids (eds)
Current trends of HIV transmission and prevalence clearly show that the epidemic is fuelled by gender-based vulnerabilities. Close to 60 per cent of adults living with HIV in sub-Saharan Africa are women, and almost 75 per cent of young people living with HIV in southern Africa are female. It is also clear that issues of gender need to be mainstreamed into attempts to curb the further spread of the epidemic. Research on the gender dimensions of HIV/AIDS needs to be augmented. New and existing research must be integrated into policy. Policy must translate into action, and good practice must inform further policy.

Men's Pathways to Parenthood
Men's Pathways to Parenthood
Silence and heterosexual gendered norms
Tracy Morison, Catriona Macleod
How does the decision to become a parent unfold for heterosexual men? Is becoming a father a 'decision' at all or a series of events? These questions are the starting point for this critical book, in which the authors unravel the social and interpersonal processes – shaped by deeply entrenched socio-cultural norms – that come to bear on parenthood decision-making in the South African context.

The Prize and the Price
The Prize and the Price
Shaping sexualities in South Africa
Melissa Steyn, Mikki van Zyl (eds)

What is the Prize, and who pays the Price? The desired and the desirable are often constellated through our ideas of what is undesired and undesirable, deeply knotted into our sense of self, our sense of where and how we fit into the world. These notions of desire form the backdrop to this powerful volume which examines the historical continuities and interruptions of heteronormativity in South African society.

From Social Silence to Social Science
From Social Silence to Social Science
Same-sex sexuality, HIV & AIDS and Gender in South Africa
Vasu Reddy, Theo Sandfort & Laetitia Rispel (eds)

This book presents a unique and innovative effort to examine what we know about homosexual transmission of HIV and AIDS in South Africa. It reverses the trend whereby categories of same sex sexual practice are almost always excluded from research of HIV and AIDS, as well as from care and intervention programmes. The varied contributors (academics, activists and programme planners) draw attention to the risk behaviours and treatment needs of people who engage in homosexual sex, and explain why same-sex sexuality has to be seen as key within South African efforts to study, test and prevent HIV infection. Relevant to scholarly debates about HIV and AIDS, it is also essential reading for anyone involved in research, policymaking, advocacy and community development.

PodcastThere are large gaps and silences in academic literature, public understanding, and health promotion strategies when it comes to addressing the needs of South Africans who are involved in same-sex relationships. Award-winning political journalist Christi van der Westhuizen chaired a panel at the Cape Town Book Fair 2009 of contributors to this HSRC Press publication. Here she introduces some of the issues tackled in the book and its co-editor, Professor Vasu Reddy.

Teenage Tata
Teenage Tata
Voices of young fathers in South Africa
Sharlene Swartz, Arvin Bhana

Teenage Tata: Voices of young fathers in South Africa provides a fresh and in-depth portrait of impoverished young South African men who became fathers while teenagers. It provides space for their articulate and impassioned voices to be heard amidst the outcry against the absence of fathers, and offers insights into young fathers’ personal, emotional, financial and cultural struggles as they come to terms with fatherhood. The study highlights young fathers’ strong sense of responsibility; poignant accounts of emotional engagement with their children and the women in their lives; the motivating power of young fathers’ own absent fathers on their parenting intentions; their desire for sex- and relationship-education from male family members and their clear recognition of the help they need. Based on a multi-interview qualitative study in the informal settlements and townships around Cape Town and Durban, this monograph offers methodological innovations and showcases how social network interviews offer great potential for both research and intervention.

Was it something I wore?
Was it something I wore?
Dress • Identity • Materiality
Relebohile Moletsane, Claudia Mitchell, Ann Smith

People often wear their causes on their t-shirts, in their choice of traditional attire or other garments, or by way of specific costumes, pieces of jewellery or particular accessories. In Was it something I wore? Dress; identity; materiality, the contributors explore the construction and performance of personal and social identities. The essays point to the significance of dress as material culture in social science research not only in their content but also in their focus on a variety of methodologies including memory work, visual studies, autoethnography, object biographies and other forms of textual analysis.

Women's Property Rights, HIV and AIDS & Domestic Violence
Women's Property Rights, HIV and AIDS & Domestic Violence
Research Findings from Two Districts in South Africa and Uganda
Hema Swaminathan, Cherryl Walker, Margaret A. Rugadya (eds)

Women's property and inheritance rights are recognised in international law and in a growing number of countries worldwide, yet women in many developing countries do not have the right to own or inherit property. At the same time, women are increasingly heading up households and are in critical need of land and property for economic security, particularly in the context of the AIDS epidemic - in fact, secure property rights are believed to be a factor in reducing women's risk of contracting HIV and in protecting them from domestic violence.
