International Women’s Day—A Woman’s Place Is Still in the Revolution

Madeleine Zúñiga, Ema Jackson

‘Wathint' Abafazi, Wathint' Imbokodo'- You Strike A woman, You Strike Rock! Famous words by South Africa women resisting and standing up to racial oppression in 1956 when 20, 000 women of all races refused to be subjugated by the apartheid government. Although the women’s March was against restrictive pass laws, this movement proved to be a turning point in the struggle against an unjust political system. The women's march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria led to significant changes in the law and the emancipation women in South Africa.

YES! It’s a very simple thing I think. When women are given educational, and economic equality---- along with the belief that they are free to pursue all kinds of careers—then an interesting thing happens—men are more free too. : )

lets not forget that in addition to education, to be free women must have access to birth control, even if the males that totally dominate almost all the world’s religions don’t like it.
