Lefatshe la lona ke sekaka fela, metse ya lona e fisitswe ka molelo. Baeng ba ja tsa masimo a lona lo ntse lo ba labile. Go sekaka fela go tshwana le fa baeng ba ribegeditseng teng.

This Bible verse, Isaiah 1:7, was shown to Past. Lilly Fritz in 2007, leading her to establish the Wo­men’s Empowerment Movement International locally.

The 11th yearly seminar was held at the Galeshewe’s social centre on 18 August under the theme “Women, who are you?”

According to Fritz, who is also the chief executive officer (CEO), this was a time for the women to do introspection on their role in society.

On the day, they benefitted from information sessions presented by speakers from various sectors, inclu­ding health, fashion and business.

A lucky draw was held in which the women won shopping vouchers.

Fritz gave testimony on how pleased she was with the growth rate of the movement.

She said it had already expanded outside Kimberley, through the establishment of branches in Pniel, Postmasburg, Koffie­fontein. Warrenton is in the process of being added to the list.

Women were urged to stand up and do it for themselves and stop bla­ming foreigners for being on the front line in business.
