Former Public Protector Professor Thuli Madonsela has urged South Africans and women in particular not to bow down to the many challenges they face. She was speaking at the inter-generational women’s dialogue organised by her foundation – the Thuma Foundation – at the women’s jail at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg earlier on Saturday.

The event, which formed part of the Women’s Month celebrations, was called among others to honour some of the unsung heroines of the liberation struggle. These include Cecilie Palmer, Deborah Matshoba and Judy Mayet.

Madonsela says the young should not allow their difficulties to define their destiny.

” My generation was wounded and I wonder whether we healed enough before we raised you guys because if we did not heal enough then we transmitted our woundedness  to your generation.  What we saw this morning though, was a refusal to bow down, was a refusal to define yourself by your woundedness, by your trauma, by all of the circumstances of your birth and your upbringing but  just honouring the soul in you and saying the soul is a human soul and it cannot be defined by another human being. ”

Take responsibility for the future you want to see. The leaders we keep asking for are us. -Prof. Thuli Madonsela#WomensMonth#TheLeftBehind pic.twitter.com/DaL0ItIHf4

As Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng said, the Constitution is a promise to yourself so it is up to you to keep that promise and make it a reality.
