This August we are hosting a month-long celebration of women in the creative industry featuring digital events, activations and, discussions. We will highlight the achievements and important contributions of women artists, photographers, filmmakers, illustrators, and more.
At the same time, we are cognisant of the fact that women in our society are subject to sexism, harassment, and assault, both in the workplace and on the street. South Africa is in the midst of a dual-pandemic – COVID-19 and gender-based violence – and this year, we want to make sure we add our voice to the fight against the war on women.
Through this campaign 10and5 will endeavor to support women’s struggle, uplift their voices, and pay tribute to the issues they face every day. Women deserve to be heard, represented, and focused on every day, but Women’s Month is a significant time to do this.
