Deputy Minister of Social Development Honorable Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu will host virtual conversations for widows under the theme “Widowhood! Where do I start”, As part of Women’s Month activities Today,26th August 2021 at 14:00 virtually.
The webinar’s objective is to create an awareness on laws and policies that protect widowed women such as estate management and the knowledge on how to access their deceased husbands’ estate.
These conversations resonates well with this year’s national theme, “The year of Charlotte Mannya Maxeke: Realising Women’s Rights”. Through these conversations, widowed women will share their experiences, which will assist others to learn from them.
Minister Zulu says widowed women are a sector that has been neglected and many have endured hardship as a result of the loss of their spouses, which could have been avoided if they had access to the right information.
