As we enter the month of August, we need to brace ourselves for the usual celebrations, commemorations and rehearsed displays of shock at the poor quality of life South African women endure on a daily basis. 

Every August, the nation rightly pays tribute to the brave women who brought the country to a standstill by marching against oppressive laws in 1956. We also use this month to draw attention to the strides made by women since the advent of democracy and to take stock of the challenges that still stand in the way of women advancement.

This is also the month when Susan Shabangu, the Minister of Women in the Presidency makes her annual appearance on the national stage as she will give countless speeches and cite an array of statistics as she seeks to convince us that she is worth the taxpayer funds spent on her.
