Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women around the world and the advancements that they have made over the years.
In South Africa, Women’s Day is celebrated on August 9th in honor of the 1956 March when 20,000 women marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against black people having to carry an internal passport at all times.
It has since become a national holiday, with the first National Women’s Day celebrated in 1994. Every year, women come together to bring attention to the pressing issues that African women are still facing; domestic violence, sexual harassment in the workplace, unequal pay, and pornography.
In honor of Women’s Day 2019, here are some ideas for how you can unapologetically celebrate being a woman and all things that make you feel strong and independent.
