Renowned gender activist and struggle stalwart, Sophie de Bruyn, together with representatives of the Ahmed Kathrada Foundation, has visited the graves of anti-apartheid activists Helen Joseph, Lilian Ngoyi, Rahima Moosa and Albertina Sisulu in Johannesburg.

This is in honour of the leaders of the 1956 women’s march against the Pass Laws on the eve of National Women’s Day.

Struggle stalwart Sophie De Bruyn remembers women who fought for freedom:

Gauteng Community Safety MEC Faith Mazibuko says, “The importance of this day is to forever remember where we come from, especially women. August 9 must not just be a day that goes in vain. But a day that we must always remember who were the champions of emancipation and the libation of women in South Africa.”
