Description DM2000091908:SAED:POLITICS:WOMEN:APARTHEID:SEP1957 - End of Round One - Anti-pass marches by women (at Standerton) took place in a new period of protest in a much more determined mood and in quick succession. On August 9, 1956, 20 000 women of all races, from the cities and towns, from reserves and villages, took a petition addressed to the prime Minister to the Union Buildings in Pretoria. He was not in. The petition demanded of Strijdom that the pass laws be abolished. (Photograph by Peter Magubane Baileys Archive) rural, neg E655 Zeerust
