The month of the woman is upon us and its time for us to celebrate the amazing beings we are. The 9th of August 2014 marks the commemoration of the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against the pass laws that required South Africans defined as “black” by The Population Registration Act to carry a ‘”pass,” an internal passport that severely restricted their movement.
Throughout the years women have progressed and evolved, this in itself is a great thing to celebrate. South African women are getting educated and making big moves in our country that are worthy of celebration and acknowledgement. We are seeing women receiving accolades for work well done, women are taking hold of their futures and are entrepreneurs.
What is a woman? A woman of substance is a woman of power, a woman of positive influence and a woman of meaning. To be named a woman of substance is one of the greatest compliments one can give a woman who aspires to be an influential person.
Remember to pat yourself on the back for just being A WOMAN.
Love & Light
