Women’s Month celebrations in Cape Town

As women, we love, care for and work hard for everyone and everything in our life, over and above giving time to ourselves.
August is Women’s Month, during which we celebrate Women’s Day on August 9 to commemorate the mothers, daughters, sisters and friends who marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria in 1956 in protest against the pass law. It’s only fitting that we continue to remember this day.
Take the time to relax, recharge and revitalise your life with the following fantastic Women’s Month events in Cape Town this August:
