She says the priorities that the older generation thinks the league should focus on are different to those of the younger generation.
Ngoasheng believes the women’s league should push for young women to be at the helm of the organisation in order to understand the concerns and challenges facing the youth.
Ngoasheng has emphasised the importance of having young voices contribute to efforts to tackle challenges and ideologies around issues like feminism and challenges black women are grappling with in the country.
According to Stats SA, Black African women continue to be the most vulnerable with an unemployment rate of 39.9% in Q1 of 2023. They also earn more than 30% less than their male counterparts.
The league says it took this decision as a precautionary measure, following yesterday’s suspected gas explosion in the Joburg CBD, which left one person dead and 48 others injured.
The league says the explosion has affected the supply of water and electricity in numerous buildings in the CBD.
The address, which was expected to take place in Chief Albert Luthuli House, has been moved to the Nasrec Expo Centre.
