Celebrating our Shackleton Risk Ladies!

Shackleton Risk has more than 60 ladies who dedicate their work day to the provision of world class service to our clients.

The 09th of August represents Women’s Day in South Africa, a day commemorating the day 20,000 women marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria in 1956 to petition against legislation that required African persons to carry the ‘pass’ under the Urban Areas Act of 1950.

While there have been changes since, the month of August has come to be known as Women’s month in South Africa with a particular focus on women’s rights and the creation of awareness surrounding gender abuse against women and children.

In 1956 the women sang the protest song, “Wathint’Abafazi Wathint’imbokodo”, meaning “now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock.” The phrase has come to represent women’s courage and strength in South Africa.

We wish all the women in South Africa a happy and peaceful Women’s Day 2018 may you be treated with the respect and love you deserve!
