Chillstep Sunday advocates keeping women safe and secure
In commemoration of International Women’s month throughout August, Redds Chillstep Sundays will celebrate girl child’s development and empowerment in their next session to be held on 2nd September 2018 at the Stanbic Bank Piazza. The artvism movement plans to stand firm and speak boldy against women abuse while celebrating the theme #SistersinArts to acknowledge strong women making waves in the creative industries.
According to Drew Chadhall the event’s founder, Chillstep Sundays has a spin off movement called Brothers Against Abuse which has been shelved for almost a year since inception. “Once we were happy with the affiliation we saw it fit to launch it in August whilst International Women’s month is being commemorated. It’s Chillstep Sundays’ way of doing what they can to advocate for Batswana Women’s safety and security,” he said.
The event will feature an women’s night market, open to all women to showcase their products, talents and businesses at no cost. Headlining the shows is all female DJ line up alongside celebrated young women like Gase Balopi who is the reigning Miss Africa, Sadi Dikgaka of Flava Dome, artist and actress Loretta Mekgwe who will network with young women at the event and give words of encouragement.
“The movement invited ladies who are part of the industry, who strive to be the best and inspire the next generation of kings to be better. The ladies will mingle with other young women and of course say share words of encouragement on the stage,” he said.
Chadhall further explained that the ‘Sisters in Art’ event also seeks to take a stance against women abuse as every week multiple reports are made about women who have been brutally murdered or abused across the country with no sense of urgency in finding solutions to gender based violence.
