Women's Month 2019

South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August. Women’s Month takes place against a backdrop of an increase in the levels of violence and brutality against women and children in our society.

The march was a turning point in the role of women in the struggle for freedom and our society at large.

The national celebrations will also include the National Dialogues on Violence against Women to help combat the continued scourge of violent attacks and abuse against women. The dialogues are a platform for deepening democracy whilst ensuring safer and crime-free communities especially for women and children. Read More...
