Signium Africa: Even A Pandemic Can’t Keep Women Down
The 9th of August 2020 marks a very different National Women’s Day for South Africa. This year, Signium Africa's attention is squarely focused on a global health disaster that threatens millions of lives.
Yet, for all the obvious negatives, some good is coming from the pandemic, especially in the way women are perceived globally. This crisis is serving to highlight our plight in terms of gender inequality but also our strengths and contributions as equal and capable members of society.
At the same time, COVID-19 has proved to be the great equalizer for genders, because we all suffered the same anxiety and none of us has answers to the problem. Instead, we have discovered that we can survive by working together and living life one day at a time.
