Women’s Day is a reminder to recommit ourselves in ways both big and small to continuing to fight for gender equality ensuring equal rights socially, politically, professionally and personally.
It is celebrated to put women’s issues in the spotlight. While we have come a long way since 1956, we are still far from reaching 50:50 representation in the boardroom, in political leadership and even in the bedroom. While there are sexist jokes about ‘women wearing the pants’ in many male/female relationships, there are still many parts of South African society that are still incredibly patriarchal and discriminatory against women, still seeing them as ‘belongings’ to do with as they see fit or to have power exercised over them taking away their right to choose.
To be a strong country we need both men and women to be treated equally, to have access to the same opportunities, the same pay, the same education and the same personal protection.
Women’s Day is a time when victories and progress in these areas are celebrated and those requiring more work are highlighted. It is also an opportunity to recognise anyone who is championing the empowering women and gender equality. We need to know who these modern day heroes are.
