Many may be aware that the 9th of August is National Women’s Day in South Africa, but do you know what the day is meant to be celebrating? The day commemorates the 1956 march of roughly twenty thousand women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s pass laws, that were instated to segregate and demoralise the communities of colour, particularly the African community. First celebrated on 9 August 1994, National Women’s Day is a testament to the undying strength and determination of women, and by extension, the true grit that is present in so many South Africans.
We at Froggie want to celebrate Women’s Day by presenting our treasured readers with our favourite shoes that we believe are the most empowering, regardless of activity.
