Women Hold Up Half the Sky

Significant historical events such as the August 9 women's march of 1956, demonstrate the strength and resilience of South African women and proved to the world that indeed, when you strike a woman, you strike a rock, wathint' abafazi, wathint' imbokodo! 

Hopefully, this resource will not only provide a lens into the contribution made by yesteryear heroines in the struggle for justice, but inspire the women of today to continue the legacy.

This virtual exhibition was created alongside an exhibition kit of the same title, which is now available on loan from SAHA.
