‘We know that for most of the time
We are invisible to you

But we will no longer be the unseen
We are taking shape
We are gaining colour
We are standing straight in front of you
We are slowly becoming un-missable
We are holding hands
You can join us
But you must begin to see
That we are no longer invisible.’

Extract from a poem on ‘invisible’ women in the South African trade union movement.
