Socially and politically, women of South Africa have reached the zenith but the question of security still hangs over them. They are going to celebrate Women’s Day on ninth of this month remembering the historic march of 1965 when an army of 20,000 women marched to the Union Buildings in Pretoria, the capital, to demand an end to laws that violated their individual rights and liberties. After covering half a century, it is to be noted that women of South Africa have acquired all the top positions right from corporate sector to the political arena. Yet women in general (in South Africa) suffer from molestation and depredation. Tina Thomson, CEO of the Businesswoman’s Association (BWA) of South Africa reasoned:The problem is that support systems for women do not yet exist, either in businesses or in the home. Women are as competent and qualified as men, but they still lack resilience to hold on to their position. BLOTCH OF BARBARITY Under the semblance of equality and constitutional commitment, South Africa is harrowing with the blotch of barbarity aimed at the native women. It has not able to face the challenge put forward by the HIV patients. The age-old civilization of political struggle against apartheid is the reason towards women cruelty but the female folk points towards the male dominating society for their harassment. Carrie Shelver, spokesperson for People Opposing Women Abuse (POWA), said:We’ve fallen into the trap of formal equality, of saying we have women business and political leaders, but too many women still go home to oppression. We need to change the mindset in the country; we need to transform institutions – it’s not only about writing new laws and thinking that’s enough.Amending South Africa’s constitution is far easier than changing its culture. Women’s Day organizers are of the view that respect and equality for women is far beyond horizon. Nevertheless, the advent may help keep the matter on the political arena.
