Cricket South Africa (CSA) joined the nation in commemorating Women’s Day by aligning to the concept of Generation Equality, which is a global campaign that enjoins the world to achieve gender equality by 2030.

Women’s Day is anchored on the overall CSA Women’s Month campaign theme of “Enabling Equality in the World of Cricket South Africa”. This is positioned with a deliberate #4Women to reflect CSA’s zeal to support the empowerment of women and create an enabling environment for the attainment of equality.

“We have thus far achieved great strides in confronting challenges of inequality faced by women at CSA, be it players or administrators. This we, however, recognise as being occasioned by decades of patriarchy, which we remain steadfast in uprooting. Equality of women at CSA will continue to enjoy our attention as an urgent imperative,” said Dr Jacques Faul, CSA Acting Chief Executive Officer.

Women at CSA were encouraged to engage with the thorny subject of inequality and paint a picture of what their aspirations are in terms of attainment of equality. This was done in a deliberate effort to enlist them in the problem-solving process.

“Women’s Day provides an appropriate platform for CSA to reinvigorate candid conversations and actions aimed at continuing our collective efforts to work towards the achievement of gender equality in the corridors of cricket,” concluded Dr Faul.

Dr Faul called on all South Africans in general and sports administrators in particular to strive to dismantle patriarchy in all its forms as an underlying cause of many of the injustices that women face on a daily basis. He acknowledged that the fight for gender equality is bigger and thus require collective commitment.
