Actor takes a stand against gender-based violence

Lana Te Brugge, aka Red Baroness, took a stand against gender-based violence by walking up Adderley Street on Saturday.

Actor and burlesque dancer Lana Te Brugge, known by her stage name Red Baroness, took a stand against gender-based violence by dressing in a striking costume and walking up Adderley Street on Saturday to the provincial legislature.

The walk was part of her campaign called Voice for the Voiceless, during which she aims to create awareness about gender-based violence as well as raise funds for two charities – Saartjie Baartman Home for Women and Children in Manenberg, and SA Women Fight Back.

She said she would walk alone in a different part of town once a month to stand up for women around Cape Town. Through the act of walking alone, she also wants women to know they can make it on their own.

Red Baroness has so far raised R1750 of her R200 000 target. Visit https://clickndonate.com/voice-for-the-voiceless-goal-r200-000/ to pledge support.

T-shirts are also available with the Voice for the Voiceless logo and proceeds will go towards charities around South Africa.
