In other news related to the challenge, Briefly.co.za reported that behavioural scientist Dr Pragya Agarwal has explained the real reason behind the black and white selfies in the hashtag #ChallengeAccepted.
Since it started trending, many Mzansi peeps have been wondering what is the real reason behind it. This trend sees women post black and white photos of themselves to promote female empowerment and to celebrate each other.
Agarwal wrote on Instagram that the black and white selfies challenge is not just a game of hot or not "or an exercise in vanity". She emphasised that the trend is not just a mindless challenge that women are undertaking to post their "sexiest snaps".
"It is a very serious gesture of defiance in support of the Turkish women (Turkey has one of the highest femicide rate), in support of Pinar Gultekin who was killed in the most violent manner, in support of every woman who has felt threatened and unsafe. This is show of solidarity to say that we stand together, we are unafraid, we are fed up of the lack of accountability for the perpetrators."
