March 8 is International Women's Day. This year it falls on a Wednesday. Chris Dwyer, a South African living in Australia, initiated a project in 2016 to mark International Women's Day annually by hosting a film screening as a fundraiser to support women's economic empowerment in South Africa.
The focus of the fundraiser is on the Marikana Widows. Khulumani has accompanied the Marikana widows since the day of the police shooting of 34 miners on the property of Lonmin Mining Company on the South African Platinum Belt. 17 were shot at Wonderkop and a further 17 at Scene Two, a smaller koppie where surrendering miners were seemingly killed in cold blood.
