Dulcie Evonne September (b 20 August 1935 and died 29 March 1988) was a South African anti-apartheid political activist who was assassinated in Paris.

Dulcie, who represented the African National Congress, was assassinated while opening up the ANC offices in Paris between 9.45am and 10.00am. Five shots from a .22-calibre gun with a silencer attached struck her in the head. It is still not known who the assassin was, but among the suspected are Joseph Klue (SADF Sergeant Major), Dirk K. Stoffberg (arms dealer and SA agent) and Heine Hüman who has claimed to be involved in the killing. Whoever he was, it is suggested that he was hired to kill Dulcie by the South African government. In recent years her death has been attributed to the Civil Co-operation Bureau.

Before her assassination, Dulcie had been investigating trafficking of weapons between France and South Africa. Supposedly, this trafficking included nuclear materials[citation needed].

On the day after her murder, Alfred Nzo commented about Dulcie, "If ever there was a soft target, Dulcie September was one."

Jean Michel Jarre composed a song for his 1988 Revolutions album named "September" and was dedicated to Dulcie. The song featured Mireille Pombo and a female choir from Mali and was performed at his Destination Docklands concert at London’s Royal Victoria Dock in 1988.
