The miniskirt festival launched on Sunday at Cappelo's in Kliptown, Soweto, made Nwabisa Ngcukana look like a celebrity.

Ngcukana, who was earlier this year abused by taxi drivers at Johannesburg's Noord Street taxi rank, has turned the humiliating incident into a positive campaign.

The launch of the miniskirt festival marked the beginning of a nationwide campaign in favour of those who wear miniskirts.

Ngcukana, who was mobbed and applauded by women wearing miniskirts, was one of the speakers who hit out at the abuse of women who wear miniskirts.

Dr Love, a gay socialite, and Jozi FM DJ Prince Tshabalala, joined Ngcukana on stage and condemned men who say women should not wear short skirts.

The campaign, which was also supported by Afro-pop singer Kelly Khumalo, was organised by the House of Zodiac promotions in association with the outspoken Ngcukana.

Terry Mokoena, the company's managing director, said that he took Ngcukana's case very seriously because he also had daughters who liked wearing miniskirts.

Mokoena said that he was concerned that his daughters might be subjected to the same treatment as Ngcukana if he did not take a stand.

The festival also had light-hearted moments.

When Tshabalala called miniskirt-clad women to come on to the stage, Dr Love joined them and the audience had a good giggle.

The next leg of the campaign will take place at Cappelo's, State Theatre, in Pretoria in a few week's time.
