South African celebs also took to the streets in the nationwide #Total Shutdown march, which aims to raise awareness of gender-based violence in the country.

While the 1 August marks the beginning of Women’s Month, many South African women have decided to spend this particular day taking a stand against abuse.

The likes of Thandiswa Mazwai and Rami Chuene marched alongside other women in this iconic event.

“Are you marching today? I’m getting ready!” Thandiswa tweeted.
