The Free State Provincial Government and the University of the Free State (UFS) recently held the second Annual Charlotte Maxeke Memorial Lecture at the Main Campus in Bloemfontein. Maxeke was one of the founder members of the Bantu Womens League and the first B.Sc women graduate from the University of Wilberforce, Ohio, in the United States of America. Her most profound legacy is her enormous contribution to womens empowerment in the home and in society at large. She died in 1939 at the age of 65.
