Well i have to say i love SA.  The holidays keep me going.  Unfortunately i do not know what many of them are about and i can say the same for the majority of South Africans.  Yet nobody will ask.  Where does women's day come from?

"This day commemorates 9 August 1956 when women participated in a national march to petition against pass laws (legislation that required African persons to carry a document on them to ‘prove’ that they were allowed to enter a ‘white area’)".

Now you have learnt just one more thing
