Local designer, Jenni Button – a luxuary women’s wear label together with artist Paul du Toit have joined forces to support the Rock Girl initiative.
This collaboration sees an exclusive, limited edition tank that has been desinges, of which the profits will be donated to the Rock Girl initiative.
Originally inspired by a group of Grade 7 students from Mannenberg, Rock Girl seeks to reduce violence against women and girls through the creation of safe spaces. They help to empower women with self-confidence and the skills they need to become agents of social change in their own lives.
As South Africa has one of the higest levels or rape and sexual violence on the continent, it’s great to see South African artists getting creative to show thier supoort for women and girls who face violence in their lives daily! The scary stats are that two out of every five rape victims are girls under the age of 17!
Show your support by purchasing one of the gorgeous Jenni Button ‘Rock Girl’ limited edition tanks! A limited number of these tanks will be on sale from mid April 2013 in selected Jenni Button stores.
