 Enduring Multiple Challenges: The Survival and Triumph of African Women in the Diaspora

The achievements that African diaspora women have registered is mainly represented in the narratives of the successes of few select individuals. In the discourse on African diaspora women there is far too much focus on the professional, educated ‘elite’ women. The day-to-day survival and endurance of each woman in the diaspora is by itself a success story that should be celebrated. The discourse on African women in the diaspora has to highlight the multiple challenges they have to endure for being women, coloured and immigrant.
