While President Jacob Zuma was delivering his Women's Day speech, Rhodes Must Fall activist Wanelisa Xaba and other women had a Naked protest, saying there is nothing to celebrate as women continue to be oppressed and marginalised.
Talking on the Afternoon Drive show, Xaba says President Jacob Zuma shouldn't have addressed the nation on Women's Day.
Why have a man speaking on Women's Day?— Wanelisa Xaba, Rhodes Must Fall activist
He [Jacob Zuma] know nothing about women's issues in this country.— Wanelisa Xaba, Rhodes Must Fall activist
There are people who are more qualified on women's issues than him.— Wanelisa Xaba, Rhodes Must Fall activist
Xaba says if men want to be part of the struggle against the patriarchy, culture of rape and sexual violence, they should educate other men and stop raping women.
They [men] will not take platforms where women can clearly articulate who they are and what they demand from the system.— Wanelisa Xaba, Rhodes Must Fall activist
I don't see another national response for women in this country to be other than be angry.— Wanelisa Xaba, Rhodes Must Fall activist
