RECOGNISING and appreciating the role of women as doers who, without much ado can get the job done, the Democratic Alliance (DA) launched the the Democratic Alliance Women’s Network (Dawn) in the province in Upington on Saturday (26/09).
The launch, which saw MPL Safiyia Stanfley announced as the new provincial Dawn chairperson, was addressed by provincial leader Andrew Louw in Upington.
“We can never dispute the role that women play in our society as pillars, not only in our individual households, but in communities as a whole. It is true when people say: If you want something done, ask a woman,” Louw said.
“We want to appreciate the mothers who wake up early in the morning to get the children ready for the day. We want to appreciate the mothers who catch the early bus to work. We want to appreciate the mothers who keep the household intact during the day. We want to appreciate the mothers who make sure food is ready in the evening for everyone to enjoy. What is a home without a mother?”
