Celebrating Women’s Day

Today we celebrated National Women’s Day, a day to commemorate the 20,000 women who marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria on the 9th August 1956. Protesting against proposed amendments to pass laws that would restrict their movement even further, these women became a symbol of the strength and courage of women everywhere.

So we hope you took today to remember the bravery of women who stood up for what they believed in, to celebrate our successes and what we still want to achieve, and to spoil all those special women in our lives!
