Hazel’s research focused on the book turned movie The Colour Purple, an epic tale spanning 40 years in the life of Celie, an African-American woman living in the South who survives incredible abuse and bigotry.

‘I looked at feminism in The Colour Purple as I believe it is both an important and relevant piece of literature that undresses this issue but also encapsulates where the rights of women stem from and why it is deemed important,’ she said.

Her mother said, ‘I am really proud of my daughter. She has worked really hard to achieve this degree. UKZN was always my first choice for her.’

Hazel plans to pursue her Masters in the future.
