IS THE SOUTH AFRICAN COAL MINING INDUSTRY READY FOR WOMEN?
PRESENTER: MOSES RAMOKHOTHOANE
Women employment in the mining industry dates back to the 19th century. Various parts of the world, for example, India, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America had women employed in large numbers. The women’s jobs were primarily manual in nature. Women were used to carry coal in buckets from the coal face and out the mine, and those who worked on the surface plants were used to sort waste rock from the coal product.
