On August 9, 1956, 20,000 women staged a march on the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against the proposed amendments to the Urban Areas Act (commonly known as the pass laws) of 1950.

BUT . . instead of creating a banner and hit the streets of cape town, i decided upon a more subtle and 'stylish' form of celebration . .
first: a brunch with girl friends
second: Woolies, Country Road & Trenary Sale
|country road <3.|
Thirdly: A stroll around the V&A waterfront, Cape Town.
and then, to beautiful sea point . . .
|seapoint, cape town. LOVE.|
and nothing quite like coffee and donuts on a beautiful Cape Town SUNNY winters day with wonderful friends
and finally, home . . . to meet my ESSIE nail polish and rooibos tea :)
women's day. YES, a day to be celebrated and to be enjoyed.
