Women’s Day with Metrorail and Drakenstein Municipality (by Anna Christiane on 16.08.2017)

National Women’s Day is celebrated annually on 9 August and is a South African public holiday. In line with the above event I did some research and found out that more than 20 000 South African women of all races attended a march on the Union Buildings in protest against the proposed amendments to the Urban Areas Act of 1950, commonly referred to as the “pass laws” in 1956. They protested against the country’s pass laws that required South Africans defined as “black” under The Population Registration Act to carry an internal passport that would limit their rights during apartheid. The women stood silently for 30 minutes and then started singing a protest song that was composed in honour of the occasion: Wathint’Abafazi Wathint’imbokodo! (“Now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock” or its latest incarnation: “you strike a woman, you strike a rock”). This song has come to represent women’s courage and strength in South Africa and was followed by 14 000 petitions that were left at the door step of the prime minister at the time.
