Abstract: »Cynthia Little examines in "Representations of Transnational and Sexual Violence in Zoë Wicomb's The One that Got Away" the transnational violence of imperialism and the colonization of South Africa focusing on the deconstruction of the uses of hypersexualized images of autochtonous women together with the sexualization of the land at the hands of imperialist patriarchy. Imperialism also contributed to the social construct of race, leading to the creation of hierarchical relations summing up to apartheid in South Africa.« (Silvia Pilar Castro Borrego and Maria Isabel Romero Ruiz. »Introduction: Gender Strike!
