Description DM2011053017:SAED:POLITICS:WOMEN:APARTHEID:1956 – Anti-pass Campaign – On August 9, 1956, 20 000 women of all races, some with babies on their backs, form 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. In 1955 – protest women wait – women from all over the Reef gathered at the Union Buildings, Pretoria on Thursday, October 27, to protest to cabinet Minister about a suggestion that African women carry passes and against the Bantu Education Act.
