After two years of virtual events, this year we were able to celebrate Women’s Month in person again on 10 August 2022 at a luncheon hosted by University of Cape Town (UCT) Vice-Chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng. The event was in honour of the recipients of UCT’s For Womxn By Womxn research grants as well as other phenomenal womxn across the university.
