Keywords Women's March, anti-apartheid, protest, pass laws
Description The Women's March of 1956 was organized by the Federation of South African Women (FEDSAW) and was led by remarkable women including Lilian Ngoyi, Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa, Sophia Williams-De Bruyn and Albertina Sisulu. The march of some 20 000 women to the Union Buildings was in protest of the introduction of pass laws by the apartheid government. African women were required to carry these passbooks at all times, a system designed to restrict their lives, movement and work to designated areas.
