Women’s Month Message from Minister
AUGUST 2014 WOMEN’S MONTH MESSAGE The month of August is Women’s  Month, which recognises the  contribution made by women in  the Struggle for freedom in South  Africa. On 9 August 1956, more than 20 000 defiant and fearless women marched  to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against pass laws. The year 2014 marks 60 years since the signing of the Women’s Charter on 17  April 1954 in Johannesburg, which called for a non-racial and non-sexist South  Africa; and demanded the emancipation, development and empowerment of  women.
