702/CapeTalk's Redi Tlhabi and Dr Eve spoke about what the International Women's Day represents. How did International Women’s Day start? Dr Eve gives us the history of this day.
The United Nation’s 2016 theme for International Women’s Day is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”.
Dr Eve says it is insane to think that we’ve got to wait till 2030 before we can say we going to have 50/50 representation equality of men and women.
