Gabeba Baderoon, born in 1969 in Port Elizabeth (South Africa), is one of South Africa’s most significant young female authors.

In her work she tackles mainly questions of identity, the essence of the self and physicality. Her works also have a political aspect. In South Africa poetry has always been a voice during enforced silence, a chance to create socio-political consciousness.

Baderoons poetry was published in South Africa, Great Britain and USA. She has won, among other prizes, the Philadelphia City Paper Writing Contest as well as the 2005 DaimlerChrysler Award for South African Poetry.
