#21Sheroes Introduction

In the run-up to the elections, we’re celebrating #21Sheroes – some of the women who fought a racist, apartheid state to help win our freedoms. Their resistance, courage & protest inspired a legacy we honour in Freedom Month.  They also remind us never to take our political rights for granted. Follow #21Sheroes for more. 

Rahima Moosa #21Sheroes

Rahima Moosa was just a teenager when she dropped out of school to join the fight against apartheid. In 1956, while pregnant with her daughter, she led thousands of women from all walks of life in a historic march to protest unjust pass laws. This Freedom Month, her legacy is a reminder of our own power to unite and use our votes to grow South Africa.
