National Women's Day


Today is National Women's Day, a public holiday which commemorates the march of women to petition against legislation, that required black persons to carry the "pass", a special identification document that curtailed freedom of movement for black South Africans during the Apartheid era.

The march took place on this day in 1956 and saw 20 000 brave woman, ascend upon the Union Buildings to deliver petitions containing more than 100 000 signatures.

Without detracting too much from its historical significance, for many, Women’s Day has taken on a broader rationale. It has become a day in which we celebrate women for their contribution to our society, kind-heartedness; ferocity; courageousness and beauty.

As Women’s Day is a public holiday, there is no better time to show the woman in your life, just how much she means to you….. Enjoy the holiday.
