Cape Town – The sixth annual Walking With Women march in Cape town, South Africa will this year take place under the banner “Empowering Persons with Disabilities”.
Starting at 9.30am inside the historic Castle of Good Hope and forming part of Artscape’s Women’s Human Festival, the two-hour march will finish at Artscape piazza.
In keeping with the tradition of the walk, children and men are welcome, as are persons with disabilities, on whom the walk is focused.
It is not a protest march, but a slow walk to demonstrate unity among women and all citizens of the Mother City.
Partnering Artscape in hosting the walk are The Chaeli Campaign – Hope in Motion, the Women Zone NPO and the South African Faith and Family Institute, which have co-ordinated a number of women leaders to bless participants at the start of the walk.
Artscape chief executive Marlene le Roux is a disabled person who has previously participated in the march riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, in a horse and cart, luxury sedan and a motorcycle side-car.This year she will be in a wheelchair.
