South Africa commemorates Women’s Day

South Africa is commemorating Women’s Day, which marks the day that thousands of women from across the country took part in a mass march against apartheid pass laws in 1956. It also honours the role of women in society. Chair in Gender Politics at Stellenbosch University, Prof Amanda Gouws told the SABC that numerous laws aimed at gender equity and justice are in place, but the problem lies with its implementation.
