1930. Native Urban Areas Amendment Act

This amendment sought "further to curtail the right of men to move into towns and, for the first time, to block the entry of women" (Simons & Simons 1969: 423).

Specifically with regard to influx control of women, see the NATIVES LAWS AMENDMENT ACT of 1952 and the NATIVES ABOLITION OF PASSES & COORDINATION OF DOCUMENTS ACT of 1952.
