Women Lead Movement sat down with Zeneley Mercia Snyders (18) from Weston High School in Vredenburg. Zeneley is an RCL member at her school 1. Tell us about your background Life gave me a blow at a young age. I was bullied by older children, since I was very quiet and never spoke or fought back. At the Children’s Home where I ended up, I was also bullied. There my roads crossed with an old man (car accident), who taught me how to look out for myself without getting into a fight. From that day onwards, my life changed [...]
Gabby Oliver Today WLM is putting a spotlight on a young upcoming woman leader. Her name is Gabby Oliver and this is what she has to say! 1. What you are currently studying and why? I’m currently underway in completing a BA degree double-majoring in Political Science and Ethics.

I always knew that I wanted more for my life and had lofty goals and ideals as I [...]

The Story of Naomi Russel. She is a Grade 9 learner from Dysselsdorp High School and one of our participantsadmin2019-11-04T04:10:02+02:00
Naomi Russell The Women Lead Movement (WLM) camp is the best camp I have ever attended. I met some profound women there. I gained a profusion of knowledge from the camp. The weekend of the camp I learnt about gender based violence (GBV),self esteem and many more. What grasped my attention the most was GBV. I found out that I have been exposed to GBV but I was uninformed. I came to know that in the majority of cases females are victims of GBV. Women are often viewed as weak creatures. I loathe stereotypes for example "girls like [...]
