Women’s Month 2012 celebrations in Cape Town

August 9 is a celebration of womanhood and a commemoration of the women who marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria on August 9, 1956, to protest against the pass laws so that our generation can enjoy the multitude of rights we now have.

Whether you’re flying in for a long weekend to enjoy the Mother City’s sights, treating yourself and your girlfriends to a well-deserved spa treatment or indulging in afternoon tea, Cape Town is the place to celebrate Women’s Day this August.

The ultimate getaway deal
