Abstract:During the 1990s, in countries as disparate as Poland, Morocco and South Africa, greater political freedom provided a space for cultural conservatives and women's advocates to clash over gender equality. Did debate about women's rights alter the legitimacy of gender justice? Through a comparative historical analysis of public deliberation and women's rights in South Africa across national, urban and local levels this dissertation offers three findings in response to this question. First, support for gender justice was indeed shaped by popular engagement in the public sphere. Second, across geographic levels and throughout the decade, debate conditions and popular attitudes toward gender justice shifted in tandem. Only a sustained rise in gender-based violence defied the positive trend. The exception of gender-based violence underscores the role of the state in the public sphere, the third finding. Contrary to the classic account of the public sphere, in the 1990s the South African state opened, shaped and directed deliberative conditions with dramatic consequences for the legitimacy of gender justice.
