August is known as a woman’s month in South Africa. Throughout the month South Africans commemorate the women that marched to the Union Building on the 9th of August in 1955 to protest against pass laws that were put in place by the then apartheid government of South Africa. The month also gives an opportunity to glorify women and also discuss the challenges that they are faced with and the opportunities that are there for them. Busisiwe Vilakazi (21), a young woman from Tembisa, shares her thoughts about the month and describes the activities that take place throughout the month as “something that should happen everyday”. “South African still have a long way to go if we’re only going to place a month to recognize the value of women” she said. In elaborating on the matter she said “men don’t have men’s month because and I guess that just highlights that apart from August, everyday in South Africa remains a men’s day or a men’s world if that you would want to call it”. The question that is left out there is that how many woman do think like Busisiwe, and if there’s more what is South Africa doing about it?
