Women’s League failing the women of South Africa

This is the first time that I find myself agreeing with Winnie Madikizela Mandela.  The Women’s League is a political mouth piece and pawn in the hands of the government.  Budgets are allocated.  Parties and functions held. The box is ticked.  The relevant self designated VIP’s stay in fancy hotels with extravagant food whilst 45% of our population cannot afford bread and water.

If we are going to have a Women’s Portfolio in government let it be a real platform for the marginalised women of South Africa.  These bread winners and social reform entrepreneurs who are keeping small and micro economies alive need representation and support not mouth pieces.
