I loved the fact that we no longer just celebrate Women’s day on 9 August, but that the entire month of August has been set aside to celebrate phenomenal women in our country while shedding light on women’s issues. When I scrolled through my Facebook newsfeed on women’s day, it was evident that some people confuse women’s day with mother’s day. I love my mother and without mothers, none of us will be here and thankfully there is a day set aside to celebrate motherhood. Consequently, I made a list of women who to me exemplifies what women’s month is about. One of the first ladies who came to mind was my dear friends, Natasha Natalie Boks.
