A Woman by Irene Richmond

In South Africa, August is Women’s month, commemorating the groundbreaking act on
9 August 1956 by the women living in apartheid South Africa who protested the law forcing black South Africans to carry a ‘pass’ – violating freedom of movement.
The author dedicates the poem to ‘all the women across all nations. Remembering them, the cradle of mankind.’ Click on the jpeg to read.
