A Portrait Series Featuring 50 GBV Heroes Nominated by 15 Organisations
We have teamed up with 50 women illustrators who have each recreated the portrait of a GBV Hero. On Women’s Day we launched the campaign on our Instagram page, and we will be releasing new portraits every day for the rest of the month.
Our GBV Heroes have been endorsed, and nominated, by 15 organisations, including Saartjie Baartman Centre for Women and Children, Tears Foundation, Sisters Incorporated, Ilitha Labantu, Lawyers Against Abuse, and L’Abrie de Dieu Safe House Stellenbosch.
With this campaign, we intend to recognise, honour and show our support for the Heroes of Gender-Based Violence. We aim to break the silence and give faces and names to the survivors, activists, counsellors, legal aid, social workers and women on the front lines of the war on GBV.
After the campaign, a poster compiled from all 50 illustrations will be available to purchase on our website, with all proceeds from the sales going back to the organisations who contributed to this initiative.
Please note that this poster is already included in the CWM Club Ticket, but can be purchased as a separate item here.
