Vaalnest celebrates Women this August

Posted on Tue August 8, 2017.

Over the years, many South Africans seem to have forgotten what Women’s Day truly embodies. It is not merely another Mother’s Day, a day where we honour women in all their glory. Women’s Day is more than that.

Over the years, many South Africans seem to have forgotten what Women’s Day truly embodies. It is not merely another Mother’s Day, a day where we honour women in all their glory. Women’s Day is more than that. On 9 August every year, South Africans are meant to remember the event that took place on the same date, in the year 1956. 9 August 1956, saw thousands of South African women, of all races and ages; participate in a mass march to the union buildings in the country’s capital, Pretoria. Their cause? To hand over a petition, signed by thousands of women, against pass laws put in place by the Apartheid government.

It is no secret that women are dynamic creatures; they hold the world in their hands. This is why something like restricting their freedom of movement was not something to be taken lightly. South Africa did not expect there to be such uproar to the pass laws, especially from women. This is testament to the resilient fire that burns within each and every woman.

Fast forward 50 odd years, women continue to break barriers put up by society. We live in a time where women are capable of anything and everything, and refuse to be held back by societal expectations. Women are now actively part of the hustle and bustle of the world.
