As part of its Women’s Month activities, the Cape Town Museum took the first steps towards establishing a Women and Gender Programme. This took the form of a brainstorming workshop, held at the Museum Services’ Office in Ruyterwacht on 31 May 2018, that was attended by museum staff and other interested stakeholders. See photos of the event below.

By establishing the Cape Town Museum as a space that fosters respect for human rights and gender equality, the objectives of the Women and Gender Programme are to create a:

  • Museum platform that focuses on women’s experiences;
  • Museum platform that deals with gender identity and gender expression;
  • Network of partnerships throughout the City.

We are looking forward to more dialogues on women and gender hosted by the Cape Town Museum. Please contact us at capetownmuseum@westerncape.gov.za if you would like to join the conversation.
