This description of Pregaluxmi Govender's work was prepared when Pregaluxmi Govender was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1993.
Pregaluxmi Govender founded a model workers' college supported by the independent trade union movement. The trade union movement has historically reflected the hierarchies of race, gender and class in South African society in its leadership. The college is designed to help redress these inequalities. In the first democratic elections of May 1994, Pregaluxmi was elected as an ANC member to the national parliament.
