The year 2006 is celebrated as the ""Year of the Woman"" in South Africa to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the women's march to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956. These individuals contributed a great deal to raise awareness of the necessity to uplift and empower women as a fundamental aspect towards strengthening our democracy. As we honour these brave women, so too do we at the CSIR celebrate our women in science, and the contribution they make to improve the lives of other people in South Africa as well as raising the profile of women in this field.
