Women’s Day Event : Working together to enhance women’s opportunities to economic empowerment


Let women of Newcastle celebrate their uniqueness and not be apologetic!

With an objective to mobilise women to participate more in the economy of the country. The Newcastle Municipality’s departments of Special Programmes and the Local Economic Development (LED) in collaboration with the Department of Arts and Culture, will be hosting an informational and testimonial women’s day event on the 19th of August 2016, under the theme, “Working together to enhance women’s opportunities to economic empowerment”.

One of the challenges faced by women is that they tend to think of others first, at their expense. This way of thinking has resulted in many unintended outcomes; which can be labelled as social-ills. It is at this juncture that these pillars of the society, be emotionally and intelligently empowered towards economic emancipation.

All municipal female employees are encouraged to wear a doek every Friday in August. This action, is in accordance to the Department of Arts and Culture campaign.

The event will be held as follows;
Time: 10h00 am
Date: 19 August 2016
Venue: Madadeni Community Hall
