Listeners can look forward to songs like Stronger by Kelly Clarkson, I’ll survive by Gloria Gaynor and Girl on Fire by Alicia Keyes, to name a few.

Listeners will also have the opportunity to send an encouraging message or uplifting shout-out to someone special or women in general via the OFM WhatsApp line on 084 222 9497.

According to OFM General Manager, Nick Efstathiou, 'Lift A Lady Up' Day is so much more than just an opportunity to play a few feel-good songs.

“It’s no exaggeration to say that women are the backbone of this country, whether they are mothers raising families, grandmothers taking care of entire households, career women breaking through the glass ceiling or women sports stars representing our country with pride – the list goes on," says Efstathiou.

Efstathiou adds, "What better way to say thank you to them by playing songs that celebrate the strength and power of women? We hope our listeners will use the opportunity to send a message on the day to the special women in their lives."

National Women’s Day in South Africa commemorates the 1956 march of approximately 20 000 women to the Union Buildings in Pretoria to petition against the country’s pass laws during the Apartheid era.
