The meaning of Women’s Month: It’s all about the Women’s March in 1956 to protest in Pretoria against the dompas, a pass that non-whites had to carry to get to white areas. They said, “enough is enough, we are not carrying a dompas anymore. These days women of all races are, for example, minister and sitting in parliament. This means that we are valuable as women, we are very important.
