Women’s Day

As Agang South Africa pays homage to the women of our nation – the mothers, sisters, daughters breadwinners, motivators, organisers, nurtures and role models – who fought tirelessly against the tyranny of the Apartheid government, we also want to focus on the core of the broken society we live in which undermines and oppresses women. If we teach our boy children at a young age the importance of respecting women, the power which they possess and the privilege of having women, not victimising them, but treating them as equals and acknowledging the strength which lies within, we can then say we are raising a society that is equal and safe for all.

This Women’s month, let us not only celebrate women, but let’s also empower them. Let us do away with turning a blind eye, after women’s month, to the abuse and discrimination that women are often subjected to. Women are suffering from all sorts of abuse. Women are getting trafficked for forced labour or commercial sexual exploitation and getting raped by family members. Young girls are not attending school because they cannot afford basic hygiene products, or they are being forced into marriage at a very young age and have to play the role of a wife at an early age. A woman’s place is in the world, not the kitchen. Women can do everything that a man can do, but are expected to work harder and act in a certain way to get half the recognition that a man would get in the same position.

By empowering women at a young age, we are building a better future for all. As leaders, as a nation, as men; let us empower women at home, school, work and use platforms that will allow them to shine and lead. Women have so much POWER within to change lives, to change the world. It is time that we invest all our energy on positive impactful things, instead of breaking our women down.

May we know great women. May we raise strong women. And may we be exceptional women.

“Don’t let someone dim your light simply because it’s shining in their eyes.”
