Indeed, “Watint’ abafazi- wathinti’ imbokodo”

A revolutionary song sung by 20000 women as they marched to and from the Union buildings in Pretoria, in 1956 on the 9th of August, to hand over a petition against pass laws imposed on women during the apartheid era.

It is in celebrating womenhood, that we remind ourselves to keep striving for dignity and equality. By nurturing our mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and nieces, we are in turn nurturing life in all its forms.

Salute to all women.
