Hedone Zine

I hang on to every word in this beautiful zine. Every once in a while, I stopped reading to just reflect on what each page had to offer, there were very refreshing and new perspectives about pleasure and this made me want to explore different things about myself, that I may have subconsciously suppresed.

In the early 1990’s, these t-shirts were made for Rape Crisis Cape Town Trust. Established in 1976, it is the oldest organisation in South Africa supporting the recovery of survivors, seeking justice and making change in communities.  The rate of sexual violence in South Africa is still among the highest in the world.  These t-shirts sent out a message that although misogyny and sexual violence against women were (are!) endemic, women are strong, capable and created supportive, diverse and inclusive communities to fight sexual violence.
