Nancy Richard from Woman Zone

Nancy Richards and Mkhuseli Khusi Veto

Nancy Richard from Woman Zone was here in studio to tell us all about their aims and programmes. The group is sustained by two pillars, one is bringing women of all different races, ages and backgrounds together and second is to celebrate what women are doing.  Women Zone went to different communities for a year and gathered empowering stories from women which was then recorded and put into a book called, Being A Woman In Cape Town.

They have managed to orchestrate a women’s library and centre at Artscape with story cafes and story sharing to revel the power women have. We spoke about the Woman’s Arts Humanity Festival held at the Artscape and their Women’s Humanity walk from St. Georges Cathedral to Artscape which will take place on Women’s Day this year and all are encouraged to join. 

The group works and interacts with women of all ages, from little girls to old ladies. Another topic of conversation was gender violence and abuse, it’s not getting better for women. Women have to work together with each other and with men to fight against these oppressions.
