Hulisani Ravele: Covid-19 saved us from overspending during woman’s month

Presenter Hulisani Ravele and veteran actress Florence Masebe are thankful Covid-19 has pressed pause on the lunches, brunches, and soirées dedicated to women every August, and hope the main target shifts to the changes women need.

August is a women’s month in SA and is typically crammed with events to “celebrate” women. However, the pandemic has ensured 2020 is treated differently, because of lockdown regulations.

“Covid-19 saved us from the women’s month lunches,” Florence tweeted. Hulisani shared similar sentiments and went a step further to suggest that perhaps August 2020 is that the right time to shift the main target to matters that require attention, like equal payment for ladies and men.

“Dear corporates, spare your female employees these Women’s Day brunches and talks and soirées blah blah, and just use that cash to raise their salary packages to their male counterparts. That’s how you’ll celebrate women, that’s how you’ll honor them. Thanks,” Hulisani said.

While most girls appeared to accept as true with Hulisani, some men weren’t on an equivalent page.

Besides asking where it had been happening, they argued that perhaps things just like the “racial payment gap” should get more immediate attention.

Obvs, Hulisani wasn’t here for any of that sort of talk on her TL, and she or he directed them to the graphic below.
