Wonderful women's gathering: strong backing from PMB

August 31 is the last day of women's month. The Wonderful Women Gathering being held at the Absa Stadium, Durban, next Saturday marks the great campaign of 1956, when women marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against the carrying of pass books.

The capital, whose streets feature the architectural heritage of the Voortrekkers and the British, is the home of the descendants of the Khoisan and Nguni-speaking agriculturalists who were here when the Trekkers arrived. It is home to coloured and Indian communities who settled here in the 19th century. The descendants of these settlers have all made a vital contribution to the city's growth and prosperity.
