Although society has made great strides in recent years to recognise and encourage gender equality, certain industries remain male dominated.
A strong woman has been breaking barriers within the South African Defence Force ever since taking her pledge in 1998.
Kgethi Morobane currently works as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Sounth African Air Force.
For 21 years, Kgethi has been serving and protecting our Rainbow Nation and has been doing so with pride.
News of her exploits was shared via the #ImStaying group via Facebook and has had a huge impact.
Hundreds of appreciative South Africans reacted to the post with positive comments and thanks Kgethi for her dedication.
Ntembi Qali praised everyone within the Defence Force:
"God bless our women and men who serve us with integrity. #ProudlySA"
Marie de Bruyn felt that Kgethi gave her another reason to stay in the country:
"You certainly are a very distinguished lady. Loved to see your post - that is my reason to stay in our country. We are strong people & will work through all problems."
Sheila Seberini rests peacefully in the knowledge of Kgethi's dedication:
"Fantastic! How wonderful and comforting to know you are defending our country...thank you."
