Ruth First

Ruth (Heloise) First (4 May 1925 – 17 August 1982) was a South African anti-apartheid activist and scholar. As a member of the South African Communist Party and the African National Convention as well as being an investigative journalist for radical political journals, she fought most of her lifetime against the apartheid system and its racial segregation. She was assassinated in Mozambique, where she was working in exile, by a parcel bomb built by South African police.
