National Women’s Day commemorates a historic protest of unjust laws under the then-Apartheid regime. In 1956, women marched onto the union buildings singing. On the 9th of August 2023 we had different speakers who were engaging with the children. They were also giving them more knowledge about the history of Women’s Day. We also had different activities that were engaged with on the day such as a role plays -the children portrayed the march that transpired in 1956 as they sang “WATHINTA ABAFAZI WATHINTA IMBOKODO” which translates to “You strike a woman, your strike a rock.”
Our young ladies decided to compile a lovely collage to appreciate and honor all the women of PCH who continue to make a difference in their lives and in the community.
Well done to them on this initiative!
Feminism is not about making women stronger.
Women are already strong. It about changing the way the world perceives that strength.
