Johannesburg, 30 April 2016 - Today we celebrate the 22nd anniversary of Workers Day which has its origins within the historical struggles of workers to establish a culture of human and worker rights.

Workers&39; Day -- or May Day -- is celebrated across the globe to highlight the rights of workers.

To mark the occasion, we look at the successes and challenges of female farmers in South Africa.

Beatrice Moraba, aka Mam’ Beatrice, from Orange Farm in the south of Johannesburg, is one of these inspirational women.
