SA: 'Women only' court directive in Johannesburg just an experiment, says judiciary

Article here. Excerpt:

'A directive issued this week by a South Gauteng High Court judge, which stated that female and gender non-conforming people could enter his courtroom while men had to wait outside until called in, was merely a once-off experiment on access control, the judiciary said on Friday.

In the unopposed motion roll dated 20 October 2021, before Judge Gregory Charles Wright, he instructed male litigants to wait outside his courtroom until they were called in.

"Only litigants in person and practitioners who are women and practitioners who identify as gender non-conforming may enter the courtroom. Men practitioners to wait outside the courtroom until called in," read the top of the court roll.'
