"Through the window of Malaika's thoughts, this book helps us to see what monstrosity of transformational challenges we are faced with in changing our universities to what they truly should be. Urgent. Remarkable. Impeccable. Lucid. Timely." Buti Manamela, Deputy Minister of Higher Education, Training and Technology
"This book is a must read for students, academics, young professionals and those in psychological health practices, as it begins to paint a picture of the struggles faced by those who are still facing and fighting the cultures that seek to bury their histories along with their sanity within South African organisational cultures." Dr Babalwa Magoqwana, Interim Director for the Centre for Women and Gender Studies, Nelson Mandela University
