Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change - a participatory exhibition
The Cape Town Museum, in partnership with the Gender Equity Unit (UWC) will commemorate this year’s women’s day event, under the International Women’s day theme for 2019: “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change”.
This event takes the form of a participatory exhibition that allows visitors to comment on and add to the exhibition material. The exhibition is part of a bigger project to document the histories of women and the feminist movement in Cape Town and surrounding areas.
Women’s Day commemorates the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against legislation that required Africans to carry the "pass" was an identification document which restricted black South Africans freedom of movement under apartheid to enter white areas. The "pass" had come into force under the Urban Areas Act (commonly known as the pass laws) of 1950.
On August 9 1956, 20 000 women staged a march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to protest against proposed amendments to the act. They left petitions containing more than 100,000 signatures at Prime Minister J.G. Strijdom's office door.
They stood silently outside his door for 30 minutes.
