Spoke of as one of the most memorable moments in South African history, this day represents courage, strength and the voice of South African women that refused to be silent. Almost 60 years ago, this silent march took it’s path through Pretoria to the Union Buildings. Once there, these women peacefully stood for 30 minutes, then left the stacks of petitions outside of the Prime Minster at the time, JG Strydom‘s office doors almost 60 years ago.

This National Woman’s Day, 9th August 2014, is a reminder of the impact woman have made and continue to make in South Africa.

Throughout our lives, there is a woman that made a difference. Whether it be mom who packed your lunch for school, a teacher who gave you the courage to try harder, a close friend who supported you in a rough patch or a grandmother who always had a cup of tea and a freshly baked batch of cookies waiting for you. Commemorate the extraordinary women in your life and celebrate Women’s Day!
