Women's Day Swim is a 4 km ocean swimming relay competition produced by Derrick Frazer of Big Bay Events on August 9th each year at Camps Bay Beach in the Western Cape in South Africa.

History[edit]

Women's Day commemorates the events of 1956 when women participated in a national march to petition against pass laws (legislation that required African persons to carry a document on them to prove that they were allowed to enter a white area). Its beneficiary is the Cerebral Palsy Women from The Western Cape Cerebral Palsy Association, a non-profit organisation catering for the diagnosis, treatment, care, training and sheltered employment for persons with Cerebral Palsy.
