“Each time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women!”

As South Africa and the world observe Women’s Month over August, we celebrate all the women in our lives.

Women’s Month and International Women's Day are significant in that it aims to celebrate the struggle for women's rights in the economic, social, political, and cultural domain; to reaffirm women's solidarity in the struggle for peace; and to show what women have achieved.

CMA Chairperson, Cheryl Winn says, “On and off the field, women have shown the world just what they are made of. We have so many wonderful and strong women in the Comrades Marathon world who continue to inspire us, motivate us and push the boundaries. Women have so much to offer to our world. We wish all women a happy women’s month.”
