ZFM Celebrates Women

blank

The ZF Mgcawu District Municipality celebrated women on Friday with all ladies wearing Black and Pink with their doeks on to encourage unity and sisterhood. We invited a Guest Speaker, Ms Nonbuso Rafisa who gave the message that women are ageless, women demonstrate incredible strength and they can exercise freedom to fulfil their heart’s desires. Women know the meaning of fun and friendship as they are God’s masterpiece.

This initiative came about as it is National Women’s month in South Africa in August of each year. The national theme for this year is: 'The Year of OR Tambo: Women United in Moving SA Forward'.

In the discussions it also became apparent that women face tremendous challenges. The legacy of oppression still weighs heavily on women. As long as women are bound by poverty and as long as they are looked down upon, human rights will lack substance. As long as outmoded ways of thinking prevent women from making a meaningful contribution to society, progress will be slow. As long as we refuse to acknowledge the equal role of women, we are doomed for failure.

It was acknowledged though in deliberations that South Africa has made some significant milestones towards improving the status of women, such as the strides that women have made in government, business, trade unions, religious bodies and women’s organisations across the country.

The women of ZF Mgcawu District Municipality agreed that more should be done to tackle Gender Based Violence that has become more prevalent in our communities. But they have also taken a stance of supporting each other in sisterly love and not just as colleagues.
