On the 09th August 1956
African women were so angry
Bitterly hurt by white supremacy policies
That stole their Africanism
That stole human dignity of a black man
That stole the recognition of a black man
That stole their freedom of movement
That stole their freedom of expression

On this day African women organized a struggle
To the Union Building, to rebel against a tyrant man
His surname was called a Pass law and
His name was called a Dompas
Singing a national anthem
Wathtint` abafazi
Watthint` imbokodo
Uza kufa

Let Africa celebrate Women’s Day
Because African women defeated a tyrant man
That was strangling African man
To breathe in freedom of movement in his own country
To breathe in freedom of patriotism in his own country
To breathe in freedom of education in his own country
To breathe out his knowledge, skills, talent, intelligence.

African women, dark and light in complexion
Overthrew the kingdom of a apartheid regime
Pass law is abolished
Racism is annihilated
Sexism is abolished
Authoritarianism is annihilated
Ethnic chauvinism is abolished

Let Africa commemorate Women’s Day
Because the oppressed are free to move without a Dompas
Free to stay in a suburb
Free to drive a BMW
Free to vote

Let’s kiss and embraced African women
Give them the Maslow hierarchy of needs
That is love, food, security, clothes, and recognition
Status, gifts, self-actualization

Africa Mayibuye, Izwe lethu. Aluta continua!
