Divas do it for women and charity

Mara Louw says women should support each other to succeed in life.

Mara Louw says women should support each other to succeed in life.

Louw is among the divas who will perform at Carnival City on August 27 at the Women's Day Celebrations Charity Concert.

Louw says women would excel in their careers if they supported each other.

"We are our own worst enemies. We practise the pull-her-down syndrome. If one woman is successful, others look for something to bring her down."

Louw says there are many challenges facing women generally, not only in the music industry.

"Women are not taken seriously. If they make it to the top, men feel threatened. Some men still believe that women belong in the kitchen."

She says until women unite and support each other they will have to pose semi-naked to sell products.

"On billboards and music videos, women are always dressed in skimpy clothes or are semi-naked to promote various brands. Unfortunately, this is how some men see us."

Louw says she is looking forward to sharing the stage with Letta Mbulu, Siphokazi, Louise Carver and Nianell.

"It wouldbe wonderful if people came out in huge numbers to support the event. After all, it is for a good cause."

A table for 10 costs R4400 and tickets cost R195 and R165 at Computicket.
