About this event

South Africa commemorates Women's Month in August as a tribute to the more than 20 000 women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women. The Government of South Africa declared August women's month and 9 August is celebrated annually as Women's Day.

Numerous issues identified as affecting South African women include, but not limited to;

· Access to health care;

· Infrastructure;

· Financial independence; and

· Sexual violence

According to the 2017 MasterCard Index for Women Entrepreneurs, South African women account for only 19.1% of business owners. This indicates that women’s progress in entrepreneurship has been disappointingly low compared to its global counterparts. 

Startup Grind East London believes that once we promote Financial independence among women, we could solve many other ills that plague women and our society.
