South African History Organisations says it's only over the last three or four decades that women's role in the history of South Africa has, belatedly, been given some recognition.

Previously the history of women's political organisation, their struggle for freedom from oppression, for community rights and, importantly, for gender equality, was largely ignored in history texts. In South Africa, women's month is used as a time to reflect on the failings and successes of women empowerment across all spheres.

The SABC revisited the role women play in politics, historically and in the current climate Mandisa Mashego from the Economics Freedom Fighters; From the African National Congress is Anisa Mazimpaka a and in our Seapoint Studios are Siviwe Gwarube of the Democratic Alliance spoke of these matters.
