” You have tempered with the women. You have struck a rock. You have dislodged a boulder. You will be crushed.” This is the battle-cry by women who marched on the Union Buildings in March 1956 against the apartheid-era pass laws.

August is traditionally Women`s Month during which women are celebrated for their resilliance and successes.


A lot has been achieved by women over the years from when black women had to contend with tripple oppression – as black women, as women and as working women.

Since then a lot of strides have been made to improve the status of women across the board – be it in politics, society, government, sports, business and many other areas – women today occupy places of pride and importance.

Achievements by women din`t drop like manna from heaven or as a favour from men. It is a consequence of struggle and sacrifices.

A lot has been achieved, a lot still has to be done.

Let us all do our bit to further enhance the status of women in society until the gap between man and women is no more. That is the best we can do in celebration of our women.
