Influential activists and civil society leaders will speak on gender justice in a webinar hosted later this month by the Cape Cultural Collective.

 

The speakers will address the question Achieving Gender Justice: What Should Men and Women Do?

The following speakers will participate in the webinar:

 

  • Joy Lange   – Executive Director, St Anne’s Homes
  • Siviwe Minyi – Educationist and gender justice activist
  • Caroline Peters, Director, Callas Foundation
  • Rumbie Elizabeth Chidoori – Gender Coordinator, Foundation for Human Rights
  • Aslam Fataar – Professor in Education at the University of Stellenbosch

 

Zenariah Barends, chairperson of CCC’s Board of Directors will moderate the discussion.

 

The programme will take place from 3pm to 4.30pm on Saturday 19 September online on Zoom and Facebook. The discussion will be live-streamed on the Cape Cultural Collective Facebook page. There are limited Zoom spaces available, email capeculturalcollective@gmail.com to register.

 

This is the second in a two-segment programme on Gender Justice. The first, Women Arise, a celebratory cultural programme with music, dance and poetry, took place on Friday 28 August and featured dancer Darion Adams, singers Thami Baba and Sisanda, poets Vusumuzi Mpofu and Khadija Heeger and musician Skye Dladla and Allison Claire Hoskins, poet and MC.

 

While the first programme affirmed and celebrated the voices of women in their quest for gender justice, the webinar will pursue solutions to what is a grim reality across the nation.

 

A range of organisations have either endorsed this initiative or partnered with the CCC and the FHR from the outset. The organisations include:

 

Women on Farms; St Anne’s Homes; The Callas Foundation; Claremont Main Road Mosque; Institute for the Healing of Memories and the Bonteheuwel Walking Ladies.

 

The programmes are part of the Community Voices for Human Rights series, sponsored by the Foundation for Human Rights since 2018. The programmes have included human rights themed community cultural concerts and workshops for young people focusing on the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

 

The CCC is in its 13th year and is growing fast, even during the current pandemic. The CCC has three choirs, runs regular cultural programmes, and does theatre productions and human rights projects. During Covid, the CCC has run various food drives in the City to support families of choir members and artists. It has also expanded its resource base, participated in a few online cultural programmes and produced music for a short movie on D6 that premiered in the US last month. The CCC’s Rosa Choir holds online practices every Saturday.
