It is indeed a great honour and privilege for me to stand here before you today, as we launch the programme of Women’s Month. It is quite significant that this occasion is held here, at the Union Buildings, which remains a site of historic relevance in women’s struggle. We are retracing the footsteps of the 20 000 women, who came from different corners of South Africa to petition against the pass laws on 9 August 1956.
