Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga’s message was welcomed over the weekend when she celebrated International Women’s Day, which took place on 8 March, with the South African Democratic Teachers’ Union (Sadtu) in Kimberley.

Addressing the Sadtu members at the filled Mayibuye Cultural Centre, Motshega spoke strongly against rape and endless gender related challenges.

Some of the female Sadtu members voiced their concerns that this is just word of mouth as men continue to occupy top leadership positions while women are either in deputy positions or are passed on portfolio positions.

“Most of us do not get recognition due to prioritising household positions or becoming house executives.

“How can we be taken seriously with such attitudes,” said a member, Mabel Tsiolo.
