Learn from SA female greats: Madonsela

By Sapa | Aug 08, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 13 ]

Many lessons can be learned from South African women who rose as leaders even when it was dangerous to do so, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said on Thursday.

In a speech prepared for delivery at a women's leadership conference in Cape Town, she said the lessons were on how to lead with courage and integrity.

Madonsela said leading examples were the lives of anti-apartheid activists Victoria Mxenge, Helen Joseph, and Helen Suzman.

She said she had learnt from these and other women to walk the road less travelled.

"They knew very well that theirs and the fate of the equally oppressed men were interconnected," she said.

"With this in mind, they boldly assumed those leadership roles to their full potential."

Many had disagreed with the government of the day when it was perilous to do so and did what was right while ignoring the risks.

"These leaders were not afraid to put their heads above the parapet. They would not shy away from making unpopular views and decisions," she said.

"All that mattered to them was for what they said and did to be the right thing."

Madonsela said women today did not have to pay such a high price for leading.

Leadership was now about running companies ethically without maladministration, corruption, or malfeasance.

It was also about holding government to account at all times.

ANCWL will not make any impact in the transformation and emancipation of women in this country as long they still vote for sweetheart leaders into positions of power. These leaders enjoy being patronised by men to the extend that they publicly denounce their lack of readyness to lead the country and at the same time during August month they are all over the country complaining about of women abuse and economic disempowerment for women.
