Women's Day Swim is part of the Cadiz Swim Series
. It is a 4K relay race held on August 9th each year at Camps Bay Beach in the Western Cape in South Africa. Women's Day commemorates the events of 1956 when women participated in a national march to petition against pass laws (legislation that required African persons to carry a document on them to prove that they were allowed to enter a white area). Its beneficiary is the Cerebral Palsy Women from The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association, a non-profit organisation catering for the diagnosis, treatment, care, training and sheltered employment for persons with Cerebral Palsy.
