|The City of Cape Town’s Arts and Culture Department, in collaboration with Rhodes University will host a series of female empowerment exhibitions and workshops which coincide with the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children. The programmes will run from 4 to 6 December 2012 at the City Hall, Darling Street Cape Town.
The My Body, My Choice, is an exhibition highlighting a women’s autonomy and their right to choose. The exhibition creates a space where women can respond to the victim-blaming, secondary victimisation and social stigma they face when they speak out about the violence they have experienced.
The message of My Body, My Choice is that women are more than just the sum of their parts and their autonomy and choice is not diminished by what they wear, or do not wear. Nobody has control over your body except for you. Your body, your choice.
The event features two of Huma’s members, Rebecca Hodes and Bianca Camminga, both Rhodes University alumni.
Rebecca will give a talk on Tuesday, 4 December 2012 @ 14:00 entitled “We must choose”
Bianca will present on Thursday, 6 December 2012 @ 16:00 on “Bodies in Transition”
All events take place at the Cape Town City Hall.
