Nolo Phiri celebrates Women’s Day in style: Pictures. Today it is a special day for women as we help them celebrate Women’s Day. Our female celebrities are also in the mood as they celebrate the day too. In case you didn’t know what Women’s day is all about well here is a little information about the day:
The holiday commemorates the national march of women on this day in 1956 to petition against legislation that required African persons to carry the ‘pass’.
The ‘pass’ was an identification document which restricted a black South African’s freedom of movement under apartheid. the pass allowed them 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.
The women then sang a protest song that was composed in honour of the occasion: Wathint’Abafazi Wathint’imbokodo! (Now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock.).
Well, Nolo Phiri is one of the women celebs who is already celebrating this day, check the pictures below…
