Then please share your concerns and your ideas with us, and JOIN our growing network of women around South Africa. 

DAWN aims to:

  • Promote amongst women consciousness of accountability, patriotism and unity
  • Promote women’s participation in every sector of public life and
  • Promote a healthy culture and recognition of women’s rights as human rights.


We believe the issues facing women can only be truly addressed if all women unite to create awareness and find solutions.

DAWN CELEBRATES WOMEN’S DAY WITH THULI MADONSELA:MECHANISMS TO REDRESS THE FEMINISATION OF UNEMPLOYMENT, VIOLENCE AND POVERTY IN THE EASTERN CAPE

P8090068

The DAWN Provincial EXCO hosted the Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela, at a Women’s Day rally on 09 August 2012.

 

The Public Protector outlined constitutional and other mechanisms to redress the feminisation of unemployment, violence and poverty and Celeste Barker, East Cape DAWN Provincial Chairperson, presented an interactive report on the feminisation of unemployment, poverty and violence.



There was a guest appearance by Avril Gordon, a victim of severe domestic violence, as well as provincial and local case studies which show that unemployment, violence and poverty have a woman’s face in our province.                                                                                                                                                          

It was wonderful to celebrate the united strength of our foremothers with Advocate Madonsela and to a future in which DAWN leads the redress of gendered inequality in the Eastern Cape.
