MANZINI: Lindiwe Makhubu, the founder and Director of Beaten But Not Broken, an organization that advocates for the rights of women said the event that was held at the George Hotel last week to fix women’s crowns was a huge success.
The organization collaborated with One Billion Rising Campaign to host the event as part of the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Based Violence(GBV).
“We learned a lot about the importance of unity as women to fight Gender Based Violence, not only within the 16 Days of Activism but we want to completely eradicate it” said the Beaten But Not Broken Director when speaking during a program hosted on Swaziland News audio channel aired every Wednesday.
Speaking during the same program, Colani Hlatswako, the One Billion Rising Campaign Africa Regional Coordinator said what he liked about the event “Fix Your Crown” was the fact that it empowered women with knowledge on economic issues that impact them.
Hlatjwako further touched on the issue of land saying despite the provisions of the Constitution that guarantees the rights of women even on issues of land ,women are denied the right to own land in the country.
“Even though we have a Constitution that guarantees women rights to land, we are still deprived access to land, these are some of the issues that were discussed” said the One Billion Rising Africa Coordinator.
