Where to Celebrate Your Womxn's Day

Womxn’s Day is a South African public holiday set aside to celebrate and remember the 1956 march of 20,000 womxn to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in order to end the repressive legislation that forced people of colour and Black South Africans to carry a ‘pass’.
