Ladies Holiday Club, in New Woodlands, hosted a brunch for the women in their area to celebrate Women’s Month. Women’s Day on August 9 in South Africa marks the anniversary of a women’s march to the Union Buildings to protest against the carrying of pass books, in 1956.

They protested against legislation aimed at tightening the apartheid government’s control over the movement of black women in urban areas. Bernadette Gelant, from Ladies Holiday Club, said it was all about women coming together and empowering each other with strength.The women meet regularly to plan their next holiday, pamper session or just to support each other.
