Here at Phepisa we would like to wish all of our beautiful women a well deserving International Women’s Day. International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March every year. Its focal point in the movement of Women’s rights. This is symbolic to South Africa’s Women march in 1956.
It’s quite evident that women have raised their voices for others in the fight against sexism, racism, and marginalization across the globe. The histories of women is yet a sad one but show the strength of women collectively whether it be here at home or abroad.
For almost 100 years women fought for the right to vote: They made speeches, signed petitions, marched in parades and argued over and over again that like men they deserve all of the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, Today because of their bravery we are free, liberated and opinionated.
Women like South Africans very own Golden Girl, Caster Semenya has changed the face of history in middle distance running by winning gold medals for women’s 800 meters and numerous breaking records.
And of course not forgetting the first Kenyan actress to win an Oscar and the sixth black actress to win an Academy Award for Best Support Actress for her roles in 12 Years a Slave, Lupita Nyong’o whose a native of Kenya, has made us Africans very proud.
Did you know: Serena Williams has won second-most single titles (23) in women’s Grand Slam tournaments of all time?
Banyana Banyana, South Africa’s women football has done a lot during the 2019 FIFA World Cup in France. Mariam Makeba who fought against apartheid policy and SA government. The list goes on and on.
I’m truly proud of women leadership and the impact they had in our histories, in businesses, education and civil movement and of course Phepisa Natural Resource Institute was established by woman Phephsile Maseko and the winner of Bring Change Lowveld big up to her and many others in medicine, aviation, construction, engineering businesses and many more .
