Women’s Month: Paying tribute to Mama Albertina Sisulu and the many women leaders of her generation



Posted: 03 August 2018

On 9 August the country will commemorate Women’s Day under the theme: “100 Years of Albertina Sisulu, Woman of Fortitude: Women United in Moving South Africa Forward”.

This month South Africa celebrates the birth of this struggle icon Mama Sisulu as well as the formation of the Bantu Women’s League. Mama Sisulu was a political activist and nurse and one of the most important leaders of anti-Apartheid resistance in South Africa.

The Mama Sisulu’s centenary celebration will form a core thrust of Women’s Month as we pay tribute to her and the many women leaders of her generation. Mama Sisulu was one of the organisers of the anti-pass Women’s March in 1956 and played a key role in its planning.

This year’s Women’s Month will bring to the spotlight critical issues facing women of today, particularly the gender-based violence and the economic empowerment of women.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is expected to deliver the keynote address during the national event which will be held at Mbekweni Rugby Stadium, Paarl, Western Cape on 9 August.  

SALGA will on 13 - 15 August, host a Women’s Commission Lekgotla under the theme “Working together to promote gender equality, sustainable development and good governance”,  at the East London International Convention Centre, Eastern Cape.
