Together #WeRule – a Women’s Day campaign with Netflix South Africa

In celebration of Women’s Day, Netflix South Africa got some of South Africa’s influential women together to find out what inspires them about the Women of Netflix….

I am so proud to say that I was invited to be a part of the conversation for this campaign!!!

To be featured among a stellar line up of awesome, inspiring women was an incredible honour and it proved to be a super fun day I won’t forget for a while!

I was among good company with the line up of influencers including Patty Monroe, Nadia Jaftha, Thick Leeyonce, Sadie Torquato, Minki Van Der Westhuizen, Nontando Mposo, Kitso Kgori, Tumi Voster and Jeannie D.

Together we had some incredible conversations around women coming together and supporting each other, while we also spoke around our favourite female Netflix characters and the portrayal of authentic, relatable female relationships on screen.

Netflix is the home of strong, diverse and inspiring women and is a platform that places great emphasis on portraying female ensembles – from the women behind the cameras to the female characters in shows such as Glow, Orange is the New Black, Grace and Frankie, Godless and Jessica Jones.

In keeping with the theme of female empowerment, the shoot for the YouTube video was captured by an all-female crew too (yes, director, sound, lighting!!) as well as stylist Tracy Lee Rosslind and makeup artist Lindy Lin.

There was also a stills photo shoot where we each were styled as our favourite Netflix female.

Can you guess who each of us are??? I’ll give you a hint. A few acronyms to get you going… OITNB, JJ, HTGAWM, HoC, DWP.

Maybe you’ll get a better idea from my close up!
