August marks Women’s Month and every year South Africa sets aside this month to commemorate National Women’s Day and to celebrate the achievements of women from all walks of life as well as count the gains and losses on women’s rights. Gender Links in partnership with the Southern Africa Gender Protocol Alliance and the Women Voice and Leadership South Africa programme are hosting a series of online dialogues starting in August until December 2022.
