    Bladder hamartoma : a unique cause of urinary retention in a child with Goldenhar syndrome
    05 Feb 2013

    The bladder hamartoma is an extremely rare entity. We report on its presence in a 5-year-old boy with Goldenhar syndrome. Most probably, this is the first report of a bladder hamartoma presenting with obstruction of the bladder outlet resulting in urinary retention. The obstructive lesion was resected endoscopically. This proved to be curative for the lesion, since the follow-up voiding cysto-ure…

    Termination-of-pregnancy rights and foetal interests in continued existence in South Africa : the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act 92 of 1996
    19 Feb 2013

    The aim of this article is to demonstrate that although South Africa has permissive termination-of-pregnancy legislation to the extent that women can terminate first- and second-trimester pregnancies on demand and for socio-economic reasons, foetal interests are in fact taken into account. The system of female reproductive rights progressively shelters foetal interests, albeit to a limited extent.

    Se(x)ation, sensation or research? interrogating the research gaze
    19 Feb 2013

    This article takes a critical look at the research methodologies regarding gender-based violence and HIV and AIDS in South Africa over the last two decades. Gender has become the operative term in these research projects and there has been a conflation or collapse of gender with the feminist perspectives analysis. The immediate question is whether the studies on gender and masculinities have de-p…

While there is no dispute among Muslim scholars and jurists that a wife’s right to maintenance (nafaqa) arises upon marriage as a natural consequence of it, there is no unanimity as to whether this right is extendable…

    Conquering the publishing silences of black academic women
    20 Aug 2013

    Although women fulfil and play meaningful roles in the academic life of universities, their contributions have seldom been acknowledged. The voices of women outside of the dominant western context of knowledge production such as women in South African historically black universities(HBUs), remains largely maginalized. Women at these HUBs have indicated a need for mentoring and support to assist w…
