The article contains an audio recording of spoken-word performance by Thembalethu Ntuli, a Durban-born and based student and poet. The audio clip was taken on 28 September 2018 at the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s Centre for Jazz. The content of the audio clip bemoans the state of violence that many South African women have fallen victim to. The poet concludes her performance by words of encouragement and affirmation to women, whom she feels are not always accorded the due recognition in society due to factors such as body weight, skin tone, etc.
