National Women's Day History
National Women's Day marks the anniversary of the great women's march of 1956, when women peacefully marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protests against the Apartheid law that required Blacks to carry pass books. On 9 August 1956, approximately 20,000 women took part in the march, many carrying their bosses' white children on their backs. The day serves as a reminder of South Africa's great women who have constantly striven to lead the country forward.
