This chapter describes elements of the transition to liberal democracy over the past decade for two birth cohorts of women in South Africa. It also considers the HIV epidemic. The focus is on the comparative effects of the political, social, and epidemic changes on the life course experience of those born in the 1950s and the 1970s.
