CAPE TOWN - Four South African women have been named on the BBC’s ‘100 Women List for 2016’.

Thuli Madonsela, Zoleka Mandela, Gcina Mhlophe and 13-year-old Zulaikha Patel are among those celebrated as some of the world’s most inspirational and influential women.

Patel, a pupil at Pretoria Girls High, was among the learners who led a demonstration against the school's discriminatory hair policy.

The school’s hair policy was later suspended by the Gauteng Department of Education, when it intervened in the matter.

Mandela is a cancer survivor activist.

Mhlope is a South African author, poet and playwright.
