Happy Women's day to our mothers and sisters

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) stated that the constitution's commitment to the dignity and equality of all people remains the aspiration of South African women. 'Women fight vulnerability and insecurity' Our society suffers from many scourges against women, such as rape, sexual violence, female killings, and gender-based violence. "Women will feel vulnerable and insecure in our society. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly exacerbated women's vulnerability and increased their inequality." He said that now more than ever A "society-wide" approach is needed to further advance the historical achievement of "the collective responsibility of the whole society, emulating the spirit and values ​​of'united struggle' embodied by women". March 1956". On this day 65 years ago, more than 20,000 women marched to the Union Building to protest the unjust pass laws. SAHRC or the committee stated that between the women’s march in 1956 and the 65th anniversary of the Union Building, it joined South African society. The other members commemorate and commemorate the struggle of women together. "We salute the collective spirit of the heroines of the Women’s Movement. They have their own merits, are united, and are willing to pay the highest price for the realization of substantive gender equality. This year’s National Women’s Day is of special significance because it commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of the staunch human rights pioneer Charlotte Maksiq. "This is also the 25th anniversary of the promulgation of the country's constitution. The constitution recognizes women's rights as human rights and is a manifestation of historical requirements and women's equality requirements."

Are our women free from being disadvantaged and being sidelined from all the opportunities that they fought for, why has South Africa after all those not having a female President to show that equality is what we believe in as a democratic and equal society. We still have a shortage of qualified women to hold all the top positions in all the spheres is our systems still against our women? if that is true then we still have a long way to go.
