The HeForShe organisation in Stellenbosch believes that if everyone participates in the feminist movement, including men, issues of gender discrimination will finally be dealt with.
Last year the organisation collected 4000 sanitary towels and distributed them to young girls at Makupula High School in Kayamandi, a township near Stellenbosch University.
