Womxn together demand economic power and financial inclusion NOW!

South African Womxn in their diversity have borne the brunt of sexism, gender discrimination, gender based violence, economic exclusion, and denial of basic human rights for decades despite laws and policies to address such. Very little has changed in 26 years of democracy.

Womxn are 51.2% (30 million) of the South African population - we represent a majority shareholder of South Africa Incorporated (SA Inc.) yet have remained massively unrecognized. As the majority shareholders, womxn are the invisible. Absent from key decision making structures of the South African economy. Absent from decisions that have an impact on our lives. We are the majority workforce but absent from designing financial products such as pensions, healthcare schemes, and insurance. We are absent from designs of health care products, absent from food production, absent from designing genderless language, absent from political power and authority. 

Year after year studies have shown the widening gender pay gap, lack of representation of womxn in private sector boards of directors, poor access to funding for womxn entrepreneurs and the well-orchestrated systemic economic exploitation and discrimination of womxn.  It is time to put an end to this!

Time is up, not anymore, WE are ready to collect OUR rightful share of the dividend of our 51.2% shareholding of SA Incorporated.

We are here to collect on everything!

●      Our land dividend

●      Equal pay for equal work dividend

●      Access to funding and credit dividend

●      Board appointment dividend at all JSE listed Companies

●      Gender equality representation dividend across all sectors of the economy

We invite men and womxn from all walks of life to raise their voices for womxn’s due share of the economy and tangible results in realising the economic liberation of South African womxn.

It’s been 64 years since the womxn march of 1956 and here we still are being treated as second class citizens in our country…

WE DEMAND

●      Accountability from all development funding agencies on their support, or lack thereof, of Black womxn-owned and controlled businesses.

●      Financial inclusion of womxn, including but not limited to, legislation that compels public companies to include womxn in leadership positions; equal pay for equal work, #PayBackOurDividend

●      The abolishment of sexist microaggression in the world of business and place of work

●      Economic power and inclusive growth that is inextricably bound up with human rights and inviolable respect for womxn.
