“A month isn’t enough to celebrate women” – Amanda Black


The singer reveals that apart from August when everything looks all good and pink, women are usually not properly recognized and appreciated in other months.

Amanda further said that women don’t even benefit from women themed shows.


“I think what’s also part of the problem and hypocritical of us to do is to simply wait for August to celebrate women while also not actually implementing changes in terms of gender-based violence and stuff that South African women are going through. We just make it so pretty, everything is pink.”

“In my space, there are so many shows that are named after women, but the money doesn’t even go to women or women initiatives,” Amanda claimed

Amanda Black has called the attention of South African to the partial treatment given to women while speaking with Okay Africa.
