As we celebrate Women's Day, three of our Miss South Africa finalists shared some wise and inspiring words on the empowerment of women and what they hope the future will be for the next generation.
South Africans celebrate Women's Day on 9 August and it's also the same day that we crown the loveliest of them all in the Miss South Africa pageant.
The fabulous event will take place at Time Square Arena, Briefly.co.za learnt, and is something that many of us have been looking forward to all year.
As we celebrate female beauty in all it's forms, three of the pageant's finalists have shared some of their wise words on empowering women, as reported on by ZAlebs.
Noluthando Bennet from Krugersdorp expressed what she thinks empowerment of women looks like:
"In a world where the odds are stacked against women, standing together and supporting each other is the key to succeeding as women.
"...if this generation succeeds, the next generation of women will be empowered and liberated to pursue their dreams."
Sibabalwe Gcilitshana from the Eastern Cape had this to say:
"The solution is to take the lead from President Cyril Ramaphosa who has a 50% female-led cabinet. That same principle needs to be replicated across all public and private sectors."
Fellow Eastern-Caper, Zozibini Tunzi added:
"The misconception about women empowerment is that it means giving power to women. That isn’t its purpose, women already have the power. Women empowerment is about enhancing and encouraging those deep reservoirs of power."
