Ramaphosa to deliver Women’s Day address
JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa is today expected to deliver the keynote address in celebration of Women’s Day under the theme 'Generation Equality: Realising Women's Rights for an Equal Future'.
Today marks 64 years since the heroic 1956 Women’s March to the Union Buildings against draconian pass laws and their impact on women.
Given the national lockdown restrictions on public gatherings, this year’s national day will be televised and celebrated virtually with president Ramaphosa his keynote address remotely.
The commemoration this year also comes amid heightened concerns around the scourge of gender-based violence with activists in the country calling for a move away from flowery language and speech to real material change in addressing the plight of women in South Africa.
