Pretoria - The Commission for Gender Equality has finally responded to an open letter by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, after her detractors tried to humiliate her.
The Commission has called on Sadtu to formally apologise for disgracing Motshekga.

"It's very serious. It says we objectify women as South Africans. We do not respect woman. We dehumanize woman in a public space because we cannot get what we want," said Javu Baloyi of the Commission for Gender Equality

Sadtu is calling for the minister’s resignation because it says it’s been left out of collective bargaining.

Women's rights groups say members of the teachers’ union are going the wrong way about their demands.
