The Womenomics is a movement that calls on South Africans, especially corporates, to make a concerted effort to accelerate women’s participation in the economy.
The Womenomics is an initiative by Olwethu Leshabane, a mom, doula, women empowerment advocate, tv personality, blogger and digital media entrepreneur.
The Womenomics is a spin-off from Olwethu’s Womenomics segment of her Podcast, The Sit Down with Olwethu Leshabane. The segment entails having various conversations with thought leaders and industry experts to inspire, motivate and equip women with the tools to manage and improve their financial and economic conditions.
The Womenomics is supported and endorsed by a number of media personalities and high-profile business and community leaders.
The Womenomics is inspired by women who marched to the Union Buildings on the 9th of August 1956 and intends to pick up the baton in the search and fight for economic freedom for the women of South Africa.
