What’s Women’s Day?

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - BEST MONTH EVER -

Sure, it’s a day o™ from work – but it’s a lot more than that. The hol­i­day com­mem­o­rates the na­tional march of women in 1956 to pe­ti­tion against leg­is­la­tion that re­quired African peo­ple to carry a pass al­low­ing them to en­ter white ar­eas. Na­tional Women’s Day com­mem­o­rates the re­silience of the women who marched and took part in the ”ight against apartheid.
