Converse celebrates Women’s Month in style

August 30, 2022

Women’s Month is a time to celebrate and recognise women proudly in South Africa. Women across the country continue to celebrate this momentous month in South African history when women took back control of their narrative. The infamous battle cry “Wathint’ abafazi, wathint’ imbokodo” translates to “You strike a woman; you strike a rock”.

On the 9th of August 2022, Converse hosted a Women’s day celebration with the vibrant, powerful forces of Converse women who have supported the brand continually. The event took place at the beautiful Prison Break Market, Lonehill.

Converse had a fun, easy-going program that consisted of dancing with choreographer Sne Mbatha, who took the dance floor by storm and taught the ladies how to do the Michael Jackson Thriller dance. Even if you’re naturally uncoordinated- Sne got everyone dancing and showcasing their moves during the celebration.

The guests enjoyed capturing content for their individual photo albums at the DreamBox, a live pop-up experience comprising 12 different boxes- each with its own theme.

Followed by an artsy spin- the guests could be seen painting on blank canvas sneakers with beautiful bright coloured fabric paint and a lot of glitter.

The guests were paired into groups and given baskets for an outdoor picnic to enjoy the scenery- with blue skies and sunny weather to match the day’s events.

Among the guests were Khosi NgemaChulumanco Mbete, and Kananelo Ngaleka.

A guest mentioned that this was an incredibly “introvert-friendly environment”, which is a remarkable feat for the socially anxious.

Converse understands to elevate the women is to elevate a queen, and there is nothing a woman cannot do.

As we end off women’s month and celebrate the resilient women of South Africa.

Converse wishes all women a Happy Women’s Month!
