You Strike the Rock

In a time of fracture and uncertainty, this is a story of four women from very diverse backgrounds, who came together in an extraordinary show of unity. Their march to the Union Buildings in 1956 helped to usher in an important new phase of the struggle movement. This is the story behind Women’s Month and our August National Holiday.

Policies for positive change as South Africa emerges from the economic Covid quandary

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended every aspect of life- it has brought urgency and immediacy to the manner in which politicians engage with citizenry, altered how we work and play, and suspended the wheel that seemed to turn inevitably toward globalisation and global integration. So rarely do events spark global introspection at this scale; about the kind of societies we are building, and how we can be and do better. This talk charts a path between blue sky thinking and what is practically possible for South Africa to achieve post-pandemic.
