DIRCO to mark International Women’s Day
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) will on Friday, 08 March 2019, host an event to mark International Women’s Day under the theme: “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”. The theme focusses on innovative ways in which gender equality and advancement can be advanced, particularly in the areas of social protection, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.
The event will also be used to highlight the struggles faced by women in some of the countries still struggling to attain independence and freedom, particularly Western Sahara. South Africa remains steadfast in its support for the Saharawi people’s inalienable right to self-determination, through a UN-supervised referendum.
The media are invited as follows:
Date: Friday, 08 March 2019
Venue: OR Tambo Building, Conference Room 1
