JOHANNESBURG - There's nothing to celebrate on Women's Day, says gender politics professor Amanda Gouws.

She said South African women live in fear every day of the year.

"I think it's difficult when there's nothing positive to celebrate and we've seen that we've made little progress with gender equality," Gouws said.

"The commission for gender equality is dysfunctional and gender-based violence specifically rape is out of control so what do we really celebrate? We live in fear 365 days of the year of rape in SA."
