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.
Sophia Williams-de Bruyn was only 18 when she helped organise the historic 1956 march that united thousands of women in protest against unjust pass laws. #FreedomMonth is a time to pay tribute to this living sheroe & to remember that you too can continue the fight for a united, equal South Africa by voting ANC on May 8.
