FEW Takes Empowerment To Township Lesbians
Written by Lerato Nkutha   

Social discrimination, unemployment, hate crimes and lack of understanding of sexual identities are challenges that continue shake black lesbians in South Africa, particularly those from townships.

The Forum for Empowerment of Women (FEW) learnt this while attempting to intervene through its Community Intervention Project, which aims to take the organisation’s services to the community, build relationships with township lesbians and to investigate issues affecting black lesbians in these areas.
