Abstract

In a first section, the story of Tamar is read from a woman’s perspective, in a meditative, literary and canonical manner. In a second section, and against the backdrop of seeing HIV and AIDS in South Africa as “a gendered pandemic,” theological reflections are suggested that could contribute in the search for resistance and hope in the face of this bleak reality.
