South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August

September marks the annual Heritage Month in South Africa.

Minister Nathi Mthethwa launched Heritage Month 2014 in Gauteng on 31 August under the theme: “Celebrating 20 Years of Democracy: Tell Your Story that Moves South Africa Forward”.

Among the projects identified to advance the “Tell Your Story” campaign are the reburials of Nat Nakasa and Moses Kotane.

South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August

Celebrating the role played by women in the Struggle for liberation

The month of August is Women’s Month, and 9 August was declared Women’s Day by the democratically elected government of South Africa and is a public holiday. Women’s Day has its roots in the political activism by women during the struggle for liberation against colonisation and apartheid which culminated in the Women’s march on 9 August 1956. About 20 000 women marched to the Union Buildings on this day to protest against the inclusion of women in the pass laws that served to control the movements of Blacks.

This 1956 march was co-ordinated by the Federation of South African Women (Fedsaw) led by four women; Lillian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa and Sophia Williams–De Bruyn.
