This day is in honour of the more than 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings in 1956 to protest the extension of Apartheid pass laws to women and to celebrated and pay homage to the women of our nation that fought against the struggle.

While we take a day to reflect on what was done way back then, I can’t help but think of the women that have been since then and those that will continue after.

I live fashion, and love clothes, trends and all that goes along with it. Though if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that is not all that I am about. I also live to find happiness in all that I do, I absolutely love Love and I find fulfilment in cheering on & helping other women and joy in seeing other women do the same.

Women banding together isn’t something you see too often these days, and one may think our generation just doesn’t have it; and though it may not be for as great a cause as it was in the past, I am happy to report that those strong women are still out there, supporting, helping and encouraging one another.

There are women out there that aren’t threatened by the growth and success of another woman, because the truth is, there is room for us all to win and this Women’s Day post is for those women and the young women who will be inspired by them.

This post is for all you wonderful women out there, may we all continue to rise and raise with us! #enjoythedayoff

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
