Get Into This!
"The Feminist Stokvel is a group of 8 women who have come together with the aim of addressing the many social issues that uniquely face black women in South Africa, especially those that speak to how black women are represented in our public imagination. We were brought together by the subject of hair, which we believe is the gateway to consciousness, self love, self respect and ultimately – self actualisation for women. While we are still coming up with a manifesto, the core value in what we do is that we are here for the black woman’s shine, in very simple terms. We haven’t launched as a group yet because we believe that our time right now is best used doing instead of saying we are going to do. So this Hair Soiree is the first of many types of projects and events including talk shops, film screenings, panel discussions, readings, online video content and any other projects that can grow in this mind frame organically, to shift thinking on a large scale.", says co-founder Miss Milli B.
